BC GROUND WATER PROTECTION REGULATION HANDBOOK
The BC Ground Water Protection Regulation Handbook is available by clicking the links below. Please note that the Handbook explains the various
requirements of the Ground Water Protection Regulation (GWPR) under the former Water Act. The GWPR was updated when the new Water Sustainability Act was brought into force on February 29, 2016, and the Handbook will be updated accordingly.
