This GIS dataset depicts the groundwater yield continuum for the lower Athabasca region. The yield continuum classifies groundwater yield along a spectrum that helps define total groundwater availability. The classes within the groundwater yield continuum (reported in cubic metres per year) from most conservative to maximum mining are: nonuse (withdrawal of groundwater equal to zero, therefore not included in dataset), permissive sustained yield (PSY_10pc and PSY_50pc), maximum sustained yield (MSY), permissive mining yield (PMY_1yr and PMY_20yr), and maximum mining yield (MMY_1yr and MMY_ 20yr).
