AbstractA hydrogeochemical study has been conducted over the central and downstream part of the Chaudière River watershed. In summer 2007, 155 water samples were taken from bedrocks wells, surface wells and springs. The principal objective was to study the natural groundwater quality. The samples were analyzed for major and minor ions, and trace elements. Despite some analytical results exceeding potable water standards and recommendations, groundwater is generally of good quality with respect to the parameters analyzed. The regional distribution of groundwater types and natural quality seem to be linked to the relative location of the sampled well as a function of the groundwater flow direction and to the hydrogeological setting.
