PETROLEUM STORAGE WITHIN WELLFIELD PROTECTED AREAS
Section 14 of the Clean Water Act provides the Minister of the Department of
Environment (Minister) with the authority to make an Order designating, as a protected
area, all or any portion of the groundwater recharge area of a municipal wellfield.
Pursuant to that section, the Wellfield Protected Area Designation Order – Clean Water
Act (Order) came into force on October 1, 2000.
The Order provides standards for chemical and petroleum storage and land use activities
within designated wellfield areas for the purpose of protecting the quality and quantity of
drinking water. The Order subdivides each designated municipal wellfield area into Zone
A, Zone B and Zone C. Zone A lies closest to the wellhead and therefore requires the
greatest protection. The Order prohibits any activity, thing or use that is not expressly
permitted in a designated wellfield.
The Order authorizes the storage of petroleum on parcels of land located within Zones A,
B and C in quantities of 25, 1200 and 2000 litres, respectively (paragraphs 5(h), 6(1)(c)
and 7(1)(a) of the Order). Existing and new petroleum storage facilities that exceed the
permitted quantities require an exemption. Section 14.1 of the Clean Water Act allows
the Minister to grant exemptions to persons who cannot comply with the Order.
Specific conditions must be met before the Minister will approve an application for an
exemption of petroleum storage. These conditions, for both existing and new petroleum
storage facilities, are outlined in the Department’s ‘Policy on Petroleum Storage within a
Wellfield Protected Area’ (Policy). The Policy outlines the specific conditions which
must be met in Zones A, B, and C based on the volume of stored petroleum products.
All exemption requests to the Minister, with the exception of 26-1200 Litres in Zone A
and 76-1200 Litres in Zone B require the applicant to acquire a Pre-Exemption Report
within one year of the date of designation. Following the issuance of the exemption an
Annual Audit Report will be required for the duration of the exemption. Both reports
shall be prepared by a Registered Professional Engineer or Geoscientist in the Province
of New Brunswick. The format of these reports is shown in the following six sections.
The information requested in the following sections is considered the minimum level of
information required by the Minister for both reports.
