This dataset describes groundwater samples from the Chaudière River Watershed collected for analysis purposes. The study area designates the Chaudière River watershed, located south of the St. Lawrence River, near Québec City. A total of 155 groundwater samples were collected from municipal and private wells (123 bedrock and 32 surficial wells) during field campaigns in 2007 and 2009. The groundwater samples were analyzed in a laboratory for dissolved major, minor and trace inorganic constituents, and microbiological parameters (Escherichia-coli, total coliforms).
This dataset was created to provide a regional frame of the spatial distribution of the groundwater samples within the Chaudiere River Watershed.
