This dataset represents the fractured bedrock aquifer of the Richelieu project. The study area includes contiguous watersheds of Yamaska and Richelieu rivers, and the Missisquoi Bay. The groundwater levels are mainly from the Hydrogeological Information System and anterior studies. The groundwater levels are divided into 12 classes, varying from less than 12.5 m to more than 600 m.
This map was created to provide a regional frame of the spatial distribution of the observation wells and groundwater levels within Richelieu area. This dataset is used to realize other themes.
