Seal your Abandoned Wells April 8th, 2015

Posted in: General

The Seine-Rat River Conservation District (SRRCD) will cover up to 100% of the total cost of sealing your private well. Our well sealing program is part of our ongoing work to reduce the potential for groundwater contamination. Old wells that are not maintained can allow pollutants to directly enter the aquifer below. Large diameter dug and bored wells can also pose a serious risk to public safety. These older wells can be a hazard for children and animals who could fall into them.

In 2014, the SRRCD sealed 28 wells in our district. The cost of sealing each of these wells was covered by the SRRCD.

We are now accepting applications for our 2015 abandoned well sealing program. All you need to do is complete an application and provide a refundable deposit of $100. You can contact our La Broquerie or Vita offices for more information, or visit us online at www.srrcd.ca.
