Abstract

The Okanagan Valley regional aquifer system is located in the area of Kelowna. It extends from Okanagan Lake in the west to Brock Point in the east and from Wood Lake in the north to Little White Mountain in the south. The area counts two aquifer types: bedrock and granular aquifers. The bedrock aquifers were separated based on proximity to the Okanagan Valley Fault, the density of bedrock lineaments, and depth. These parameters mostly affect hydraulic conductivity. The granular aquifers were divided on the basis of British Columbia aquifers division and nature of the deposits. The dataset mainly focusses on hydraulic conductivity, recharge rates, aquifer vulnerability and groundwater flow for each hydrogeological unit. Data concerning confinement, surficial deposits thickness, wells depth, groundwater depth, yields, aquifer potential, groundwater usage and groundwater quality are available. The dataset is a summary of data and hydrogeological information for all aquifers, aquifer systems and hydrogeological contexts of Okanagan valley project.
