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

Hydrogeology of the Waterways-Winefred Lake Area, Alberta

Abstract: The hydrogeology of the uppermost 1000 feet (about 300m) of strata in the Waterways and Winefred Lake areas is described. Maps and profiles were constructed from limited existing data and from data collected by field survey and drilling operations. The 20-year safe yields are mostly over 5 igpm (about 25 l/min), reaching 25-100 igpm (about 100-450 l/min) for over half of the map area. These yields are available within 500 feet (150 m) of the surface.A practical limiting factor on groundwater use is quality, as deeper groundwater is saline. In many places saline water discharges to the surface.A semi diffuse groundwater discharge feature (quasi-spring) describes sources of creeks at definite spring like points in groundwater fed muskegs. The quasi-springs are climatically and topographically controlled discharge features of climafrost zones. Widespread muskeg development exists in the area and degeneration of the groundwater flow systems is noted.
