Aquifer Mapping - Final Report Presentation - May 16, 2013
Since 2009 the Town has been engaged in an exhaustive study of the Gibsons Aquifer to determine the extents of the aquifer, where the aquifer water comes from, the potential population it could serve, and how to protect this valuable asset. The final report of the findings will be presented by the Town’s consultant, Waterline Resources Inc. to Council and the public at 6:00 p.m. on May 16th in Council Chambers at 474 South Fletcher Road, Gibsons. Come and join us to learn more about the source of the Town’s award winning water supply and how we can project it for future generations.
Take a 45 minute walk along the waterfront and through the Town to explore some of the features of the Gibsons Aquifer. This interpretive tour provides a history of the Town’s supply of pure drinking water from the glacial creation of the aquifer to present day.
