Groundwater is a resource of quality and of incomparable value. Indeed, in Quebec, it can often be exploited without requiring treatment. Therefore, capital and operating costs are much lower than those induced in the surface water treatment.
Hydro-Ressources staff conducted a significant amount of underground water supply projects for municipalities and companies. For the vast majority of the projects, the results have been positive. We worked on the most important water supply projects in the Province of Quebec. In some cases, the pumped flow rates exceeded 40 000 L/min. This is significant amount of water that enabled the concerned operators to save millions of dollars in capital and operational costs.
