Hydrogeology of the Pelican-Algar Lake Area, Alberta

Author(s) Ozoray, G.F. Lytviak, A.T. Date 1980-01-01

This report describes the hydrogeology of the uppermost 300 m (1000 ft) of sediments in the Pelican-Algar Lake area. Maps and profiles were constructed from existing data and from data collected in a field survey. The 20-year safe yields are mostly over 0.4 l/sec (5 igpm). Most bedrock aquifers, however, yield saline water unsuitable for human consumption. Water supplies must be based on shallow aquifers mainly in the drift and Upper Cretaceous Wapiti Formation.
