Identification

Abstract

The South Nation River watershed is located in the southwest of Ontario. The sector includes Ottawa and the southern area. It extends in the west to Lower Rideau Lake and to the Ontario-Quebec border in the east. The northern limit is the Outaouais River and the southern limit is the international border. The main hydrogeological feature of the basin is the Vars-Winchester Esker, which is divided in four hydrogeological units, based on the quaternary sediments. These units have two aquifers (one in the glaciofluvial sediments and the other in the bedrock) separated by aquitards (Champlain Sea mud and till). The dataset describes in details the stratigraphy and groundwater usage. However there are also available information on confinement, surficial deposits thickness, hydrogeological unit thickness, recharge and discharge, hydrogeological unit yield, aquifer potential, hydraulic conductivity, and groundwater quality. The dataset is a summary of data and hydrogeological information for all aquifers, aquifer systems and hydrogeological contexts of the South Nation River Basin project.
