Identification

Abstract

The dataset shows the contamination vulnerability of the Annapolis valley bedrock aquifer, according to the DRASTIC method. The aquifer includes five watersheds: Annapolis, Cornwallis, Canard, Habitant and Pereau. The results of the vulnerability study show that the valley floor is the most vulnerable region. The remaining areas were categorized as mainly very low to low in terms of vulnerability, with sections of extremely low vulnerability.

Introduction
General process description
Process step Sources
The dataset was extracted form the file bg_gsc_v_Erase.shp that was converted to a raster using ArcGIS by attributing the values in the field GRIDCODE to pixels. The cell length is 100 m. Pixels values correspond to the fallowing values. 1. 1-79 Extremely low; 2. 80-99 Very low; 3. 100-119 Low; 4. 120-139 Moderate; 5. 140-159 Moderately high; 6. 160-179 High.
