Water Sustainability Act – Hydrogeological Advice
Client: Vernon Golf & Country Club
Since the 1950s, the Vernon Golf and Country Club (VGCC) has operated several wells to provide irrigation water to the golf course. Following changes to the regulatory requirements for groundwater users in February 2016, the VGCC retained Associated Environmental Consultants to provide information on relevant regulations, and advisory services that included assisting with a water licence application for the wells. We used several sources of information to confirm proof of use, and determine volumes used and details of the works, before submitting an application to Front Counter BC for a groundwater use licence. The VGCC received their water licence in January 2017.
