Identification

Abstract

This dataset shows the transmissivity values of the Milk River Transboundary Aquifer. The aquifer is bounded by the edge of the Disturbed Belt on the west, by the Cypress Hills on the northeast and the Bears Paw Mountains on the southeast. Transmissivity values have mainly been calculated from pumping tests. The results range between 1x10^-6 and 2.9x10^-2 m2/s. The highest transmissivities are found in the Cut Bank area, Montana. The lowest transmissivities are located in central Alberta, near Foremost. Other low transmissivities are found northern Alberta.
