Due to the Proximity ,there is High Probablity of contamination.
If such a Catastrophe should occur Who will bear responsiblity for allowing un- checked development to occur?! Aug8 Tribune:One -third of the well water samples tested by York Region are showing signs of bacterial contamination, according to the health department...some 16,000 households,or 53,000 people rely on wells for water.A leading indicator of contamination is the level of total coliforms,comprised of bacteria that are present in the environment...20% of wells are showing signs of total coliforms...this could also be the result of contamination from septic systems.Fecal contamination can also result in the presence of E. coli, which are bacteria from the intestinal tracts of warm-blooded creatures Aug10 Total water ban in effect due to high temps ,lack of rain.
