25. Owners of spring water, mineral water or groundwater catchment sites intended to supply drinking water, the average operation flow rate of which is greater than 75 m3 per day must have the following documents signed by an engineer who is a member of the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec or a geologist who is a member of the Ordre des géologues du Québec:
(1) the plan showing the location of the supply area;
(2) the plan showing the location of the bacteriological protection area and the virological protection area which correspond to the portions of the supply area of the catchment site as defined by using a migration time of groundwater over 200 days (bacteriological protection) and over 550 days (virological protection);
(3) the assessment of the vulnerability of groundwater within the areas defined in paragraph 2 by applying the DRASTIC method;
(4) the inventory of the activities and works located within the areas defined in subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph that are likely to alter the microbiological quality of groundwater such as wastewater treatment systems, works or sites for the storing or spreading of animal waste or farm compost, yards or feedlots.
For catchment sites operated for drinking water supply purposes the average flow rate of which is 75 m3 per day and supplying more than 20 persons, the bacteriological protection area shall be set within a 100 m radius from the catchment site and the virological protection area shall be set within a 200 m radius. For the purposes of Division II of this Chapter, groundwater is deemed to be vulnerable. Protection areas may be different if they are established in accordance with the provisions of subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph and the vulnerability of groundwater was assessed therein by applying the DRASTIC method.
The inventory referred to in subparagraph 4 of the first paragraph must be kept up to date and the information listed in subparagraphs 2, 3 and 4 of that paragraph must be available upon request to the Minister of Sustainable Development, Environment and Parks.
Furthermore, a copy of the documents referred to in the first paragraph must be given to the local municipality in whose territory the catchment site is located.
