Hydrogeology of the Edmonton area (southeast segment), Alberta

Within these deposits, aquifers consisting of sand and gravel, sandstone, and fractured coal are capable of yielding groundwater at rates of up to 8 l/sec (100 igpm). Groundwater flow is generally from a western upland area to the east, but ... Show Abstract

Hydrogeology of the Edmonton area, (northeast segment), Alberta

Hydrogeology of the Edmonton area, (northeast segment), Alberta The northeast segment of the Edmonton map area (NTS 83H) covers about 1750 square miles (4500 km�) within the Eastern Alberta Plains physiographic region. Within these deposits, ... Show Abstract

Hydrogeology of the southwest segment, Edmonton, Alberta

The southwest quarter of the Edmonton map area (NTS 83H) has an area of about 2850 square km (1100 square mi.). Climate is microthermal with warm summers, and the area receives about 460 mm (18 in) of precipitation annually.In the area thin drift ... Show Abstract

Hydrogeology of the Edmonton Area (Northwest Segment), Alberta

In the bedrock, yields are typically less than 5 igpm.Groundwater flow systems in the upper 300 feet are largely controlled by the connection between the river and buried valley sand and gravel deposits, and by the incised nature of the valleys In ... Show Abstract

Regional chemistry and water level distribution of the near surface groundwaters of the Edmonton area (northwest segment) Alberta

Abstract: The chemistry and water level distribution of the near-surface groundwaters are described and interpreted on a regional basis. To facilitate description and interpretation the available basic data were sorted into three groups. These groups were data from the drift, data from the upper 75 feet of bedrock and data from the bedrock from 75 to 250 feet. The data for each of these layers were then automatically contoured. These contour maps of chemistry and water levels for each layer are presented in the report. Interpretation of the contoured data led to the following major conclusions: the water level distribution closely resembles surface topography; over most of the area flow has a downward component relative to the water table; buried channel sands and gravels act as high permeability line-sinks and are a major influence on water level distribution; soils and drift lithology are the major influence on groundwater chemistry, flow direction is a minor influence; Stony Plain and Gladu Peak are major areas of infiltration to groundwater; ion exchange occurs from the drift to bedrock quickly and completely and some sulfate reduction takes place from drift to bedrock.

Sand and Gravel Resources of the Edmonton Area, Alberta

Sand and gravel deposits of the Edmonton area can be grouped into preglacial, glacial, and recent alluvial deposits, distinguishable on the basis of time and mode of deposition. Preglacial deposits are extensively distributed along the floors and ... Show Abstract

Geology of the City of Edmonton Part 1: Central Edmonton

The City of Edmonton is built upon surficial deposits of variable thickness underlain by Upper Cretaceous strata. The surficial deposits, of late Pleistocene age, consist of well-sorted preglacial sands and gravels, glacial till, and proglacial ... Show Abstract

A Farm Water Supply from Quicksand

The drift is composed mostly of material that has been locally derived and thus it is also fine grained.Such an environment is not favorable for the development of groundwater supplies. In many districts of Alberta a large proportion of the rural ... Show Abstract
