Potential e­ffects on groundwater regime and groundwater quality resources

Assessed Values

  • Groundwater regime
  • Groundwater quality and quantity

 Assessment Methods

  • Review of background information, environmental setting and characteristics, including existing groundwater use (i.e., wells)
  • Long-terms groundwater monitoring program
  • Pumping tests on selected monitoring wells
  • Measurement of marine tidal fluctuation in Howe Sound and their effects on groundwater levels
  • Three-dimensional numerical hydrogeological modelling based on baseline study data
  • Model groundwater conditions to predict and characterize potential changes and potential groundwater-surface water interactions
  • Model pathways and travel times of geochemical sources
