Abstract

The Department of Environment, Water Resources Management Division maintains a list of Public Water Supplies in the Province and also a GIS layer depicting the geographic boundaries of these supplies. The supplies are indexed using a unique Water Supply number (e.g. WS-S-0000) that links the supplies to other databases in the Division. A supply can be either Surfacewater (SW) or Groundwater (GW) based and are further broken down into four categories: Protected, Unprotected, Potential, ILUC. This layer pertains to Protected Water Supplies only. Protected Water Supplies are supplies protected under Sections 39(1) or 61(1) of The Water Resources Act, SNL 2002 cW-4.01. The protection of these supplies is approved by various agencies through the Inter-Departmental Land Use Committee (ILUC) and published in the Newfoundland Gazette. Under the Act the Department may restrict activities in the protected area that have an adverse affect on water quality. The legal boundary of a Surfacewater protected supply is usually depicted by straight lines and the GIS layer may also show areas of natural drainage to the supply that are outside the protected legal boundary. The legal boundary of a Groundwater protected supply can be either a circle centered on the wellhead or a polygon which has been delineated by a hydrogeological study. The Public Water Supplies GIS layer uses feature codes, which are described in the document "Feature Codes - Public Water Supplies" which is available on the department's web page at http://www.gov.nl.ca/env/water.
