10. Any application under the Environment Quality Act (chapter Q-2) for an authorization to carry on on land an industrial or commercial activity in a category listed in Schedule IV must, if a catchment installation for surface or groundwater intended for human consumption is situated less than 1 km downstream from the land, be filed with a groundwater monitoring program intended to ensure compliance with this Regulation, in addition to all documents or information required under that Act or any other regulation made under it.
The program must contain
(1) a description of the land’s prevailing hydrogeological conditions;
(2) a designation of the substances referred to in paragraph 2 of section 5 and the location on the land of the points of emission of the substances; and
(3) a detailed description of the monitoring well system including the number and the location of the monitoring wells.
Except where the monitoring program has been prepared by an engineer or geologist who is a member of an order governed by the Professional Code (chapter C-26), the monitoring program must be filed with a certificate of such an engineer or geologist stating that the data is accurate and the monitoring well system allows groundwater quality to be monitored in compliance with the requirements of this Regulation.
An applicant for an authorization is exempted from the requirement to furnish a groundwater monitoring program if, in the application for authorization, the applicant shows that the groundwater monitoring requirements under the third paragraph of section 4 have been satisfied.
