WCQI Grant:


Regional District of Central Okanagan

Project Description:

This project was a component of the Groundwater Assessment of the Okanagan Basin (GAOB); completed by researchers from the Geologic Survey of Canada. Results of the seismic data collection include bedrock layer identification and 3D mapping to create a hydrogeological model of the major aquifer systems in the central Okanagan. The model can be used for groundwater resource management and to assess aquifer vulnerability. This project was a large water science initiative within the Okanagan, contributing to the OBWB’s goals of becoming a hub for water science and research.
