Aquifer System


Sandilands aquifer system
Sandy sediments are exposed over most of the study area and form a regional unconfined aquifer. Although glacial till is more prevalent at depth, some till units are discontinuous as a result of erosion which may provide hydraulic connections between surficial and deeper aquifers. Along the western margin of the Sandilands' Bedford Ridge, a channel has eroded into bedrock and provides a hydraulic connection to the underlying basal clastic unit (Winnipeg Formation) bedrock aquifer which subcrops in the area. The Carbonate unit overlies the basal clastic unit to the west of the Sandilands but was not observed within the Sandilands area.
