Metadata: Annapolis Valley Hydrogeological Units

Identification

Abstract

The Cornwallis-Annapolis valley is located in the northeast of Nova Scotia. It extends from Annapolis Royal to the Minas Basin in the north. The area is divided into three hydrogeological units: good or variable bedrock aquifer, good surficial aquifer and poor aquifer. The latter is considered as an aquitard. The two other units have good aquifer potential. The dataset mostly describes the geological and stratigraphic settings and the groundwater flow in the regional system and in each hydrogeological unit. The dataset also gives information on confinement, surficial sediment and hydrogeological units thickness, wells depth, groundwater depth, hydraulic conductivity, recharge and discharge, hydrogeological units yield, aquifer vulnerability, threats and groundwater quality. The dataset is a summary of data and hydrogeological information for all aquifers, aquifer systems and hydrogeological contexts of the Cornwallis-Annapolis valley.
