Nobleton Groundwater Resource Evaluation - Notice of Groundwater Well Testing and Survey of Water Wells
The Regional Municipality of York is conducting groundwater studies in the community of Nobleton, in King Township as part of the Nobleton Groundwater Resource Evaluation (GWRE) program. In 2021, York Region completed the Nobleton Water and Wastewater Servicing Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) Study which recommended the development and testing of the new Nobleton Production Well 6 at 12860 Highway 27. As part of the GWRE program, York Region will be collecting additional information on the Nobleton groundwater supply system. The GWRE will involve the construction and testing of groundwater monitoring wells at the following locations:
- 13740 Highway 27, Nobleton
- 22 Faris Avenue, Nobleton
- Highway 27 right-of-way, adjacent to 12650 Highway 27, Nobleton
When: Between March 27 and December 22, 2023
York Region will be testing the groundwater wells after they are constructed through the continuous pumping of groundwater from the wells for a time frame between 24 and 96 hours. We do not expect any impact to your water supply. Updates about the project will be posted on york.ca/waterconstruction under the Nobleton Groundwater Resource Evaluation.
Groundwater Well Survey – Available until May 3, 2023
Prior to the well tests, York Region is surveying residential, commercial and industrial water supply wells around the well testing sites to better understand local groundwater use. We are asking for your participation in the survey as your property is located within the area of investigation.
If you have recently taken part in a similar survey as part of the Nobleton Production Well 3 Replacement Project and have no updates to your previous response, you do not need to complete the survey again.
Information about the construction of your well, should you use one, may be available on the well record, through your well drilling contractor or found on the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks record mapping tool at https://www.ontario.ca/environment-and-energy/map-well-records. Thank you for your participation in the survey.
