Metadata: Vulnerability of the Mirabel Region Aquifer

Identification

Abstract

This dataset designates the bedrock vulnerability to surface contamination in Mirabel area. The study area located northwest of Montreal, includes four regional county municipalities: Argenteuil, Deux-Montagnes, Mirabel and Therese-De-Blainville. The vulnerability is assessed using the DRASTIC method. The low vulnerability areas are located where the clay sequences are thick. The low vulnerability areas count for 65% of the study area. The rest of the study area (35%), designating recharge areas and fractured bedrock outcrops, shows a high vulnerability.
