AbstractA comprehensive hydrogeochemical study was carried out in the Paleozoic Basses-Laurentides sedimentary rock aquifer system in Québec. The hydrogeochemical data were analyzed by combining conventional geochemical and statistical methods, such as classification by water types and multivariate statistical analysis. The integration of hydrogeochemistry, including the origin, evolution and geochemical processes, within the hydrogeological and geological contexts allowed the division of the region into four main geochemical areas, providing a global picture of the aquifer system dynamic. With its integrated approach, this hydrogeochemical study brings an example of the long-term evolution of hydrogeological systems, as well as a contribution to the characterization and understanding of complex groundwater flow systems. This understanding is essential for the sound management and future development of groundwater resources in the region.
