In May of 1974, the Oil Sands Environment Study Group (O.S.E.S.G.) authorized a First Phase Regional Hydrogeological Study of the McMurray Oil Sands area in Alberta. The objects of the assigned study were to: • Determine the present availability of pertinent hydrogeological data. • Interpret this...
Detailed studies of groundwater-surface water systems in Hartley Creek basin show the creek to be at baseflow for only a few months in the winter when other contributions to streamflow are negligible. Following spring snowmelt, drainage of muskeg is the major contributor to streamflow along with...
The Athabasca Oil Sands cover an area of approximately 36,000 km2 and contain an estimated 626 billion barrels of bitumen (approximately 100 billion m3) in place. Recovery of this bitumen will be undertaken by strip mining where the oil sands are covered by less than 100 m of overburden. The...
Carbon isotope analyses of gases extracted from drilling muds while drilling in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin (WCSB) can be used to create carbon isotopic depth profiles. These profiles provide essentially continuous data through the stratigraphic section, offering a unique opportunity to...
Twelve deep aquifers and 12 aquitards were defined in southwestern Saskatchewan. Four major water types were identified: Type 1 (Ca-SO4) freshwaters, found in Paleozoic aquifers; Type 2 (Na-Cl) brines, found in all aquifers; Type 3 (Na-SO4) waters, mixture of Type 1 and Type 2 waters; and Type 4...
Physics of wastewater flow and pathogen transport processes from a soil-based at-grade effluent treatment system and associated groundwater contamination risks in Alberta, CanadaDownload
Understanding of wastewater flow and transport processes and treatment effectiveness through the soil-absorption field of soil-based wastewater treatment systems remains a challenge. In addition, Alberta regulators and the on-site wastewater industry wanted to quantify the effectiveness of the...
The Bakken Formation is the most productive formation in the Williston Basin and one of the most important tight oil plays in North America. Oil in the Bakken Formation has been shown to migrate from the mature, central portion of the Williston Basin outwards towards the less mature portions of...
Application of SWAT-MODFLOW Software to Evaluate Groundwater-Surface Water Interaction in West-Central AlbertaDownload
Responsible watershed management is emerging as a key issue as humanity continues to place increasing demands on water resources. To meet future demands, it has become imperative that water resources be managed as a holistic system rather than solely focusing on individual aspects....
