Following the completion of the PRRD Groundwater Baseline Project, the 3D images describing the aquifers and the groundwater regime are available for download and viewing. In order to view the 3D data file you will need to download the free viewer Leapfrog Viewer. You will be asked to provide your name and a valid email address in order to download the program from their site. If you have questions on the Leapfrog Viewer please review the Quickstart and Reference guide documents provided on Leapfrog’s site.
MONTNEY WATER PROJECT
The Montney Shale Gas Play in northeast British Columbia is a world-class unconventional natural gas resource. Operations in the Montney are moving into development drilling, which will increase the demand for water and deep sites for the disposal of fluids. Provincial, First Nations and local governments, industry, communities, and environmental groups all want to ensure that water sources are carefully managed during natural gas development. http://www.geosciencebc.com/s/Montney.asp
The PRRD Groundwater Baseline Project is being conducted by GW Solutions for the Peace River Regional District. The project will establish a comprehensive understanding of regional groundwater resources and share that information with PRRD residents.
