This grid represents the distribution of hydraulic head in the McMurray 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. Cenovus groundwater monitoring wells pertaining to the Environmental Impact Assessment of the Cenovus TL ULC Telephone Lake In-Situ Project
  3. Pressure data from drillstem tests from oil and gas wells

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