Abstract/Description or Keywords Thurber was retained by the CVRD in 2011 to investigate the source of nitrate contamination in groundwater in the area of Fisher Road in Cobble Hill, BC. A series of phased studies were undertaken by Thurber between 2011 and which included the drilling and sampling of three groundwater monitoring wells located immediately down-gradient from three suspected sources of groundwater nitrate inputs. Nitrate concentrations exceeded the BC Contaminated Sites Regulation (CSR) Drinking Water standards. This project included locating and directing the construction of a new up-gradient well, developing and sampling the new well, and sampling 3 existing monitoring wells. This report summarizes the results of new well construction and development and presents the data and interpretations from groundwater sampling and analysis.
