Sommaire en anglais
On the Canadian Prairies, water is obtained from surface sources (dugouts, lakes, reservoirs, ponds, rivers, etc.) and groundwater sources (wells and springs). Water from a particular source has its own unique quality characteristics. These characteristics can change slowly over time, or rapidly (sudden contamination event). The characteristics may also change in a cycle that matches the changing of the seasons. Surface water and shallow wells are more susceptible to seasonal changes and sudden contamination events than properly sited and constructed deep wells. Water quality within the same pipeline, household or farm distribution system may be different at various locations within each system (water quality can deteriorate in the pipes).
