Abstract

Eskers in Abitibi area are the main springs water supply for several cities, towns and industries (fishing and bottled water), furthermore, 73% of the population is using groundwater for their residential needs. This project includes a study of the groundwater flow dynamics within a segment of an esker which has a great potential, the St-Mathieu/Berry Esker, Abitibi. This project consists of different activities: the first phase that began April 1st 2003, was mainly planification and compilation of existing datasets (2-D and 3-D surfaces) from Parmalat, MNR, MTQ, MENV and Amos municipality. This important source of information was used to build the first 3-D geo/hydrostratigraphic model. This phase also included the elaboration of an acquisition-integration tool (interpretation-constraint) for a semi-automatic stratigraphic modeling. The first year all the data was also integrated into a corporate database which is compatible with the National groundwater new database. Reports were submitted in March 2004. This project will help fill the gaps in knowledge of groundwater supplies in Canada. It will also allow the elaboration of new methodologies and tools to transfer accurately 2D sections to 3D geo/hydrostratigraphic models that could bring a new understanding of the internal morphology of eskers and of the groundwater flow dynamics.
