Non-domestic groundwater wells need to be licensed

There are about 20,000 groundwater users in BC who are now expected to license their well and pay for the use of their water.
If you use a well for anything other than a household use and a personal garden there’s a good chance you now have to get a license and to encourage compliance those fees, which start at 250 dollars, are being waived until March of 2017.
That’s as a result of changes to the Water Sustainability Act.
Darryl Slater, Water Authorizations Section Head for the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations says non domestic water users will also have to pay annually for the water they use…..
Applications are dealt with on a first come, first serve basis so the sooner it’s received, the sooner you can expect a decision.
