Abstract

A joint hydrogeological assessment study between Université Laval and the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) has been conducted in the Chaudière River watershed. The regional aquifer system is dominated by the underlying rock substratum of the Appalachian province and Quaternary aquifer units. The degree of confinement of the fractured aquifers is controlled by the overlying glacial, marine and fine lacustrine sediments of variable thicknesses. The groundwater circulation within the fractured aquifers predominantly takes place in the uppermost part of the fractured water-bearing units, where fracture density is highest. A 3D numerical finite element model was built with the Watflow model (Molson et al., 2002) for simulating the regional groundwater flow system. Although this model is mainly based on the model of Brun Koné (2013), some changes (eg: mesh, calibration criteria) have been made compared to the original version with the most recent data and results presented here.
