Welcome to GIN

The Groundwater Information Network is developed to improve knowledge of groundwater systems, and enhance groundwater management, through increased access to groundwater information. GIN connects a variety of groundwater information from authoritative sources, such as water well databases, water monitoring data, aquifer and geology maps, and related publications. Provincial and territorial collaborators include British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Québec, Nova Scotia, Yukon and Newfoundland and Labrador; international collaborators include the USGS and others.
