This document provides examples of uses of the intrinsic vulnerability maps in land use planning and source water protection, using the South Cowichan area of Vancouver Island as an example. It draws on a number of previously published resources including the BC Well Protection Toolkit, the BC Comprehensive Drinking Water Source-to-Tap Assessment Guideline, and the BC Groundwater Bylaws Toolkit.
