Identification

Abstract

This dataset presents some hydraulic properties (hydraulic conductivity and transmissivity) in the Paskapoo Formation, Alberta. The study area extends north of Whitecourt and to the west of Lethbridge. Transmissivity values were calculated from pumping test data obtained from water well reports. Calculated transmissivity values range from 10^-1 to 10^-14 m2/s. Higher hydraulic conductivity values occur in coarser-grained sandstones (as high as 10^-3 m/s) that have lower rock fragment and feldspar content.
