This data release contains water chemistry data used to create a total dissolved solids (TDS) map of the McMurray hydrostratigraphic unit (HSU). The data were acquired from the following sources: 

  1. Alberta Environment and Parks' Alberta Water Well Information Database (AWWID)
  2. Alberta Environmental Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting Agency (AEMERA) Oil Sands Groundwater Monitoring Database [2016 version]
  3. Alberta Geological Survey (AGS) sampling program conducted between 1999 and 2001
  4. Formation water chemistry data from oil and gas well drillstem tests (DSTs) and production fluids
  5. A Ph.D. thesis produced by B. Cowie at the University of Calgary in 2013.  

Data have been processed, relevant records selected, and outliers removed to compile this dataset.
