Owned and operated by the Township of South Glengarry, the Redwood Estates well was constructed in 1995 and is designed for a population of 150, supporting a total of 39 residential lots.
Four Wellhead Protection Areas (WHPAs) have been delineated representing differnt times of travel to the well: WHPA-A, WHPA-B, WHPA-C and WHPA-D (travel times of "immediate", 2 years, 5 years and 25 years respectively). The WHPAs have been scored from 2 to 10. The vulnerability score is a representative measure of the drinking water source's susceptibility to contamination. Higher scores indicate higher vulnerability.
