Abstract

The Spatial distribution of the annual recharge rate of the regional fractured bedrock aquifer, Richelieu project. In Montérégie Est, the regional roc aquifer annual recharge was estimated using several methods. The distributed recharge presented on this map corresponds to the mean recharge for 1970-2010 and was established using HELP software (Hydrological Evaluation of Land fill Performance ). This software combines data on climate, vegetation, territory occupation, ground properties, deposit and bedrock. With the software it is also possible to calculate the water balance parameters such as plants evapotranspiration, surface and underground water runoff. Regarding the recharge, very low values were estimated for the north part of the St. Lawrence Platform (Lowlands), especially due to the low permeable thick clay sediments covering this area. The recharge is higher in the internal Appalachians zone and on the Monteregian Hills. The recharge is good, but lower in the external Appalachians zone (Piedmond) and in the south part of the St. Lawrence Platform (Lowlands). Globally with a recharge of 100 mm/year the underground water renewal is fairly important in Monteregie Est, but the recharge spatial distribution is highly variable.
