Groundwater Monitoring & Mapping
Groundwater samples are collected from a network of monitoring wells, domestic wells and surface sampling points within the communities of Anglemont, Celista/Magna Bay, Falkland, Nicholson, Seymour Arm, Sorrento/Blind Bay, Sunnybrae and White Lake. Samples are sent to a laboratory for analysis and the findings are compared with data from previous years to assess the impacts of domestic septic effluent on groundwater conditions in those communities.
Groundwater is sampled 2 times per year in the Sorrento/Blind Bay area and once per year in Anglemont, Falkland and Nicholson with samples submitted to a commercially certified lab for analyses.
The following Groundwater Monitoring Reports are done in December of each year.

|Revelstoke Airport Bench Area Groundwater Re-Assessment |
Following concerns from local residents of possible diminishing groundwater quantity and deteriorating water quality in a portion of the Revelstoke airport bench area, the Regional District employed the services of a qualified groundwater specialist to conduct an assessment of the current conditions and to compare the latest results to an earlier study of the groundwater conditions in this area. The results of that comparison indicate that there is has been neither groundwater level decline nor water quality deterioration between the study dates of 1985 and 2009. The results of that study are shown in the Groundwater Re-assessment document.
