Springs are an important source of water supply in British Columbia, yet little is known about their occurrence, source areas, or sensitivity to impacts from land use activities. An important step in protecting and managing the spring supply is defining the spring's source area. This report presents an approach for defining the source areas of water supply springs in B.C. The approach is based on the use of readily available data and limited field investigation. While the approach and techniques can be applied to a wide range of spring types, they will probably be most applicable to springs associated with shallow, local flow systems, which are common in B.C.
