The Kelowna-Mission aquifer mapping project was started in 2017 with the objective of building a comprehensive regional hydrostratigraphic model of the Kelowna area. Understanding the character of aquifers in priority areas such as Kelowna is an important component of groundwater resource and risk assessment in the province and provides critical support to British Columbia's Water Sustainability Act.

Audience:  Government and Public

A three-dimensional (3D) modelling approach was utilized to generate digital representations of aquifers and their confining units, to add aquifer information to the wells database and to summarize the regional hydrostratigraphy of the local overburden. The model presented in this report extends from Ellison lake, south to bedrock slopes below Myra Canyon, and from Lake Okanagan, east to where Mission Creek enters the Okanagan valley upstream of Gallaghers Canyon.
