The Waterloo Moraine is located in the south of Ontario. It extends from the city of Waterloo to the surrounding areas, including Baden Hills and Hawkesville spur. The moraine consists of a sequence of aquifer-aquitard. The aquifers are composed of glaciofluvial sand and gravel deposits and are located between major till units which designate the aquitards. There are three main aquifer units. The upper one is regionally continuous, but the two lower are discontinuous. The dataset mainly exhibits the geological and stratigraphic setting, and the groundwater flow of each hydrogeological unit and of the regional system. Confinement, surficial unit hydraulic conductivity, recharge, hydrogeological units potential, groundwater usage, aquifer vulnerability, threats and groundwater quality data are also available. The dataset is a summary of data and hydrogeological information for all aquifers, aquifer systems and hydrogeological contexts of the Waterloo Moraine.
The dataset was created to gather in the same dataset all available data and information for all aquifers, aquifer systems and hydrogeological contexts of a project.
