(A) The City of Saugatuck has determined that certain groundwater underlying areas including the city is, or may be in the future, the source of water supplied by the Kalamazoo Lake Sewer and Water Authority. Groundwater aquifers are integrally connected with the surface water, lakes and streams that constitute significant public health, recreational and economic resources of the city and surrounding area. Spills and discharges of hazardous substances threaten the quality of the groundwater supplies and other water related resources, posing potential public health and safety hazards and threatening economic losses.
(B) This chapter is intended to protect existing and potential groundwater supplies, aquifers, and groundwater recharge areas of the sources of water supplied by the Kalamazoo Lake Sewer and Water Authority.
