Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
The Region of Peel operates 15 municipal production wells and 4 municipal residential drinking water systems in the Town of Caledon communities of Alton, Caledon East, Caledon Village, Cheltenham, Inglewood, and Palgrave. Historically, well maintenance has been carried out on a regular, as needed, basis to maintain the water supply for the residents of these communities. Typically the water operations group would determine the maintenance schedule in response to either the staff noticing a decline in the well performance and a consultant/contractor would be commissioned to help in addressing the issue or due to a periodical well and pump maintenance program.
Early 2016, the groundwater group recognized the lack of involvement in the Region's well maintenance tasks by technically qualified regional staff from other groups. A new approach was proposed by the groundwater group to management and it was approved to start a pilot project by the end of 2016, whereby cross-functional staff (Operations, hydrogeologists, management and Program Planning and Compliance) took on additional responsibilities for the well efficiency program. Palgrave No. 2 was approved to test the proposed approach. Only after the project team met to discuss and plan for a comprehensive testing of the Palgrave water system was a contractor and consultant retained, albeit with a reduced scope of work.
As a result of the work in Palgrave No. 2, several inconsistencies were found in Peel's approach to maintaining the rural community's water supply systems. These were largely due to poor, or in some cases non-existent, communication between various technical experts in different groups within the region.
The new approach has fostered a renewed sense of appreciation for the diverse skills among Peel Region staff and will undoubtedly result in less reliance upon contractors and consultants for this type of work into the future.
