MAP 601

Surficial Geology of Alberta

Three additional maps were consulted during compilation but were not ultimately included in this dataset (see Alberta Geological Survey Map 601 for more detail). The resulting surficial geology layer was overlaid on a hill-shaded Shuttle Radar ... Show Abstract

Regional Chemistry of Groundwater in the Wainwright Area, Alberta

Abstract: The Wainwright map area is located southeast of Edmonton between longitudes 110 & #176; and 112 degrees west and latitudes 52 degrees and 53 degrees north. It covers about 6,000 square miles (15,500 square km), lying mostly in the aspen parkland vegetational assemblage. Average precipitation is about 14 inches (36 cm) annually, while potential evapotranspiration is about 21 inches (54 cm) annually.Geological units of hydrogeological interest include glacial drift, preglacial sands and gravels, Horseshoe Canyon Formation, Bearpaw Formation, Belly River Formation and Lea Park Formation.Contour maps of the following hydrochemical parameters for various depth intervals are presented: 1)total dissolved solids, 2)hardness, 3)sodium plus potassium, 4)alkalinity, 5)sulfate, 6)chloride and 7)fluoride.Groundwater quality is related to the thickness and nature of the glacial drift and to the character of the underlying bedrock. Areas where the water quality is comparatively good for depths up to 500 feet (152 m) are usually overlain by 50 to 400 feet (15 to 122m) of coarse-grained glacial drift. Rapid movement of water downward is hypothesized to account for this good quality. Groundwater of poorer quality is commonly found in areas of thin, fine-grained drift and is apparently the result of slow downward movement of water. The marine Bearpaw Formation accentuates this situation.Considered regionally, the area acts as a recharge for groundwater flowing to the northwest. However, much water is probably discharged locally in sloughs.

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
