Water Budget and Water Quantity Stress Assessment

This report is an analysis of how much water is available within the boundaries of the Lakehead Source Protection Area. Water quantity is measured and characterized by the influences of the water cycle including precipitation, runoff and evaporation. The Water Budget provides an understanding of how water is connected as it moves through a watershed.

Watershed Characterization Report

The Watershed Characterization Report is a documentation of the water resources within the boundaries of the Lakehead Source Protection Area. The Characterization Report provides a description of the natural environment and the human influences that may impact water quantity and quality of the watershed as it relates to Source Protection Planning.

Thunder Bay Aquifer Characterization Groundwater Management and Protection Study

The Thunder Bay Aquifer Characterization Groundwater Management and Protection Study is a study aimed at obtaining a better understanding of the groundwater resources, uses and vulnerability within the study area of Thunder Bay.

Approved Assessment Report

The Approved Assessment Report describes local watershed characteristics and the available water supply in the watershed of the Lakehead Source protection Area. It identifies the vulnerable areas for Municipal residential drinking water systems where the sources of drinking water may face risk of contamination or depletion. Finally it assesses the potential threats to the sources of Municipal residential drinking water within the defined vulnerable areas.

Approved Source Protection Plan

The Source Protection Plan is the strategic document for the Lakehead Source Protection Area that outlines policies and procedures to ensure that all significant and potential threats to the sources of Municipal residential drinking water systems are managed in a way that they will never become significant drinking water risks.
