This research investigates the nature and controls of surface water–groundwater interaction at the watershed scale, and investigates how mechanisms which control this interaction during baseflow conditions might best be represented within an integrated surface-subsurface numerical model. The study site is the 46 km² Bertrand Creek Watershed, which is situated in a glaciated landscape in Cited by: 2.

The impact of climate change on groundwater resources is not the subject of many studies in the scientific literature. Only rarely sophisticated downscaling techniques are applied to downscale estimated global circulation model (GCM) future precipitation series for a point or region of interest.

    Groundwater is vital for Canada’s health, environment and economy. Nearly a third of Canada’s population, some 10 million people, depends on groundwater for safe drinking water and more than 80 per cent of Canada’s rural population depends on groundwater for its entire water supply. Canada’s groundwater, however, is increasingly under threat from factors such as urbanization, climate.

What is the Abbotsford-Sumas Aquifer. The aquifer is an underground store-house of water that is used by overpeople in B.C. and Washington, covering sq km ( sq miles). This water, called ground water, is located in coarse sands and gravel in the Abbotsford. Groundwater Monitoring to Support Development of BMPs for Groundwater Protection: The Abbotsford-Sumas Aquifer Case Study Article in Ground Water Monitoring and Remediation 35(1) February Abbotsford-Sumas Aquifer The aquifer is unconfined and comprised of glacial outwash sands and gravels (Sumas Outwash) deposited ab years ago.

The groundwater flows from north to south in the aquifer at a rate of about 1 to 5 meters per day (Cox and Kahle, ). ∆File Size: 6MB. Groundwater Protection. Groundwater in the Abbotsford-Sumas Aquifer is very susceptible to being polluted or contaminated. Depending on what is on the ground at the time, rainfall can mix with substances such as spilled petroleum products, pesticides or fertilizers, including manure, and introduce these unwanted chemicals into the groundwater and contaminate it.
