This grid represents the hydraulic head distribution of hydraulic head in the Milk River hydrostratigraphic unit (HSU). It is a result of a geostatistical model which was constructed using publicly available data from the following sources:

  1. Alberta Environment and Parks' (AEP) Alberta Water Well Information Database (AWWID).
  2. Formation pressure data from drillstem test and production fluids from oil and gas wells.

The head surface was mapped at a regional scale using many years of data, thus providing a good indication of regional water groundwater flow within the unit rather than site-specific values.
