The Maritimes Groundwater Initiative (MGWI) is a large integrated hydrogeological study focusing on a representative area of the Maritimes Carboniferous Basin, where some of the most productive aquifers in Canada may be found. It covers approximately 27 000 km², of which 15 000 km² consist of Carboniferous rocks, and includes parts of New Brunswick (NB), Nova Scotia (NS) and Prince Edward Island (PEI). The main objectives of the MGWI project are to improve the general understanding of groundwater flow dynamics within the major aquifers of this Basin and provide baseline information for a regional groundwater resource assessment.
