My Aquifer > Aquifer Protection in the LPRV > Should our aquifer be designated a Sensitive Resource?


Ultimately, the decision whether or not to adopt stricter protective measures will be a community-wide responsibility, wherein water managers, citizens, and political leaders will need to work together to decide what action if any will be taken. In the lower Portneuf Valley, where limited future water capacity and development planning needs are already focused on the community's future water supply, tying aquifer protection to the Our Valley, Our Vision buildout planning efforts is a logical step to ensure that all sectors of the community will have a say in defining future needs and the means of achieving shared community goals.
