The Langdale Well Field Project is an SCRD water supply project that will support residents and commercial water users on the Langdale Water System, and potentially the Chapman Water System.

Why Langdale?

The SCRD operates a groundwater well in Electoral Area F (West Howe Sound), near the Langdale Ferry Terminal which services the Langdale area. In 2017, groundwater studies identified the potential to draw more groundwater from this aquifer source sustainably.

The Langdale Water System has the potential to be connected to the Chapman Water System. This will help increase water supply for residents on the Chapman Water System and provide redundancy to Langdale water customers.

What's Next?

In 2022, the SCRD drilled two new production-sized wells to confirm that this site is suitable for expansion and that the source meets water quality requirements. The results from the wells have been favourable.

Preliminary engineering and design report will be presented to the SCRD's Committe of the Whole on January 11, 2024. The report can be found on the right panel of this page. Following presentation to the SCRD Board, application for a water licence from the Province Government will be prepared.

Construction of a water treatment plant, pumping station, and several kilometers of water mains would not start until 2025.

As the Langdale Well Field project continues to move forward, the SCRD will continue to update the Let’s Talk page and send out newsletters with information on the well field development.

    Hi. Interested if the Langdale drilling reached bedrock? With respect to Jan 25 Board groundwater presentation of drill targets. Are the any known productive fractured bedrock aquifers on the Sunshine Coast?

    BenchMark asked 5 months ago

    The Langdale drilling did not reach bedrock.  Due to the nature of fractured bedrock aquifers, they are categorized as lower probability for large-scale production. Due to the requirement for any drilled well to hit a productive fracture, there is an element of chance inherent in the drilling/exploration of these aquifers.

    Table 8-1 of the 2013 Comprehensive Regional Water Plan identifies the following bedrock aquifers within the SCRD:

    No.Description / LocationMaterialsSize (km2)
    555SecheltBedrock24.7
    558Halfmoon BayBedrock10.3
    559Mixal LakeBedrock8.7
