This grid represents the hydraulic head distribution in the Grand Rapids 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. Pressure data from drillstem tests (DSTs) from oil and gas wells

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