This map is a view of the land use in the Cornwallis-Annapolis study area. The different classes include coniferous, shrub, wetland, agriculture fields, barren land, water and clouds.
This 3-year project is conducted in collaboration with provincial and federal Departments, environmental associations and academic institutions. The Cornwallis-Annapolis Valley Aquifer Study (ACVAS), covers approximately 2600 km². The objective of this hydrogeological study is to characterize the groundwater resource within granular and fractured aquifers of a major economic region of Nova Scotia. Both quantity and quality issues will be addressed. A better knowledge of the hydrodynamic conditions and characteristics of the groundwater is essential for the well-being of the population and the economic development of the region. This project provides baseline information that contributes to ensure that perennial good quality groundwater is available within the Cornwallis-Annapolis Valley.
