This grid represents the distribution of hydraulic head in the Cardium 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 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 groundwater flow within the unit rather than site-specific values.
