Identification

Abstract

Prince Edward Island is a Canadian province consisting of the main island and other islands, located eastern New Brunswick. The island consists of one regional aquifer system, composed of fractured sandstone. Commonly, the surficial deposits are not significant aquifers. The dataset mainly focuses on groundwater threats, aquifer vulnerability and groundwater quality with details on agriculture impacts on groundwater quality. However, there are also available data concerning confinement, surficial sediment thickness, bedrock hydraulic conductivity, recharge and discharge and groundwater usage. The dataset is a summary of data and hydrogeological information for all aquifers, aquifer systems and hydrogeological contexts of The Prince Edward Island project.
