Faulder Zoning Review

The Faulder Community relies on groundwater from the Meadow Valley Aquifer for their drinking water supply.  In 2015, a new Faulder Community Well was drilled into the Meadow Valley Aquifer to replace the existng well that supplied domestic water to an estimated 215 residents. 

This well is seen to be near capacity and is not capable of accommodating unlimited growth, a situation that is reflected in the Electoral Area "F" Official Community Plan (OCP) Bylaw No. 2790, 2018, which recognizes that water supply and quality issues are of concern in the Faulder area and includes a policy discouraging "subdivision of properties in order to maintain the rural character of the area."

To support this general policy direction, the Regional District is reviewing existing policy directions and the zoning of properties within the Faulder Water Service Area in order to determine alternate approaches (see information linked below).

NOTE: this project was deferred by the Regional District Board at its meeting of December 2, 2021, pending the completion of a study of the Meadow Valley Aquifer.
