Source Water Protection

In order to service the residents of Tatamagouche, water is drawn from the French River before it is treated and distributed to customers, while Debert uses groundwater from two wells. These areas where water is captured are referred to as ‘watersheds.’ These watershed areas must be protected from spills, pesticides, fertilizers and other things which could impact the quality of water. Both areas have Source Water Protection Committees which help to monitor activities within the watersheds. For more information on the watershed boundaries, click on the maps below.
