Groundwater is a priceless resource lying beneath most of Alberta’s land surface. About 90 percent of rural Albertans rely on groundwater for a household water supply. Reliance on groundwater continues to increase in rural Alberta because of the steady increase in livestock populations and groundwater requirements for oil recovery purposes. Eastern Colorado is part of the Great Plains region and includes the High Plains and Colorado Piedmont sub-regions (Figure ). It is a broad plain dominated by Upper Cretaceous through.

This study evaluates the groundwater qualities and environmental changes to obtain information on the groundwater contamination in the Permian Basin, Texas. Coupled with the U.S. government’s open data, these analyses can identify regions where environmental change could have affected groundwater quality. A total of thirty-six wells were selected within the six counties: Andrews, Martin.

The State of Wisconsin is located in an unusually water-rich portion of the world in the western part of the Great Lakes region of North America. This article presents an overview of the major groundwater quantity and quality concerns for this region in a geologic context. The water quantity concerns are most prominent in the central sand plain region and portions of a Paleozoic confined.   Hot off the press - the results of our new study into groundwater in southern Alberta. Scientist Joan Rodvang McNeil narrates a PowerPoint that explains her findings and what it means in terms of understanding our groundwater.

Alberta’s natural regions are divided into 21 subregions (see Map 1). Subregions are composed of areas with similar landscape patterns within a natural region that are distinct from other subregions in that natural region.

In summer ofthe Government of Alberta approved the Lower Athabasca Regional Plan and with it, three environmental management frameworks that aim to manage the cumulative effects of different activities in the region. The Groundwater Management Framework outlines a strategy for monitoring, evaluating and reporting changes in groundwater.

This paper addresses the distribution, origin and controls upon nitrate in a km 2 area of the Interior Great Plains Region of southern Alberta, Canada. High concentrations of nitrate (> mg l −1 NO − 3-N) occurred in several isolated enclaves below the water table in brown weathered e concentrations of over mg l −1-N were encountered in groundwater samples collected.

Groundwater studies. The Alberta Geological Survey (AGS) has conducted numerous studies and assessments of groundwater resources in Alberta over the past 50 years.

Available on the AGS website, these publications include. The Floridan aquifer system consists of the Upper and Lower aquifers, which are separated by a less permeable confining unit (Miller, ).The Upper Floridan, which consists of the Tampa, Suwannee, and Ocala limestones as well as the Avon Park Formation, is more widely used for water supply than the Lower Floridan, and is the focus of this brief overview.

The eventual quality of the groundwater depends on temperature and pressure conditions, on the kinds of rock and soil formations through which the groundwater flows, and possibly on the residence time.

In general, faster flowing water dissolves less material. Groundwater, of course, carries with it any soluble contaminants which it encounters. A Summary of Land Resource and Groundwater Resource Issues Related to Plains Coal Mine Reclamation in Alberta.

In response to public concern about arsenic levels in groundwater in the Cold Lake region, the Arsenic in Groundwater in Cold Lake Area Working Group conducted a project to monitor Arsenic in groundwater in three areas of Northern Alberta between January of and June of Alex Mackenzie led the monitoring project.

Long-term (>year) temperature, precipitation, and other climatic records for the region exist for Winnipeg, Brandon, Indian Head, Regina, Swift Current, Medicine Hat Edmonton, and Calgary, with shorter records for some other climatic stations in the northern Great Plains.

In general terms, the northern Great Plains experience a cold. The Dust Bowl was a period of severe dust storms that greatly damaged the ecology and agriculture of the American and Canadian prairies during the s; severe drought and a failure to apply dryland farming methods to prevent the aeolian processes (wind erosion) caused the phenomenon.

The drought came in three waves, and –, but some regions of the High Plains experienced. The summary report discusses the regional geology and groundwater characteristics of the Central Plains region of AlbertaIncludes text from document and publisher's website.

recommendations and general conclusions drawn from four reports of contamination of the Athabasca River system by oil sands operations. Two papers were written by a.Groundwater Extraction Except in areas where groundwater comes naturally to the surface at a spring (a place where the water table intersects the ground surface), we have to construct wells in order to extract it.

If the water table is relatively close to the surface, a well can be dug by hand or with an excavator, but in most cases we need to use a drill to go down deep enough.Where's the "Good" Water? In Alberta, non-saline water is defined under the current Water Act as any water that possesses a mineralization (as total dissolved solids content, or TDS, in mg/L) equal to or less than 4, mg/L.

This water can reside in unconsolidated or consolidated bedrock formations situated anywhere from surface to depths exceeding several hundreds of meters.
