This grid represents the distribution of hydraulic head in the Horseshoe Canyon / St. Mary River hydrostratigraphic unit (HSU). It is a result of a geostatistical model which was constructed using publicly available data from the Alberta Environment and Parks' (AEP) Alberta Water Well Information Database (AWWID).
While the pressure data from oil and gas well drillstem tests (DSTs) were considered and processed, no useful data were found.
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.
