GW Solutions has worked with the Mid Vancouver Island Habitat Enhancement Society (MVIHES) to collect information on the presence and behaviour of aquifers in the Englishman River (ER) watershed, to define aquifers, to assess the
elevation of the water table in the aquifers, to estimate the groundwater regime (groundwater flow path), and to define the interconnection of the aquifers and the ER.
The work during Phase 1 was community-based and 36 private...
GW Solutions, when completing a new 12-inch production well (PW7-2015-GWS-12In) at the Conuma River hatchery, observed that some of the wells (Well #1 to Well #6) were not being used to their full capacity. Hence, GW Solutions proposed to assess the aquifer underlying the Conuma River hatchery.
This assessment by GW Solutions included the following tasks:
Carry out a topographic survey to determine well head elevations;
GW Solutions worked with the Liard First Nation and Yukon College to provide groundwater/surface water mapping to assess the quality of groundwater drinking sources in Watson Lake, Upper Liard, and Albert Creek.
The project consisted of describing the movement of groundwater and the geometry and characteristics of the local aquifers. The interconnection between surface water and groundwater was assessed.
Draft conceptual models were built describing t...
GW Solutions has provided a detailed definition of the subsurface aquifers and groundwater regime to a multi-disciplinary team in support of a long-term watershed and land use planning project. GW Solutions developed a 3D conceptual model (using leapfrog hydro) of watersheds and aquifers and used this to characterize the groundwater flow regime, recharge and discharge and seasonal flooding. As a follow-up to this project GW Solutions collaborated fu...
GW Solutions has defined a conceptual model of the groundwater regime in the area of the Liard Hot Springs (located near the BC-Yukon border) for Fisheries and Oceans Canada and has provided an opinion on the potential risks associated with deep well drilling in the area
