Where does the water come from?

No one knows the source of the water that is supplying this well. There are varying professional opinions. Its recharge area could be the moraine system and stream recharge area north and west of the well, or it could be much farther away, towards Grand Valley or Shelburne. Wherever the water originates, it is part of the catchment area of the Grand River, which has been at below-target water levels for several years.
