Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The groundwater Atlas of the Chaudière River watershed is focused on its middle and lower course. It is an output of the Groundwater Geoscience Program. The Atlas presents the main geological, hydrogeological, hydrogeochemical and hydrological settings in the studied part of the watershed. It provides a regional overview and interpretation of the appropriate data. Thematic maps accompanied with explanatory texts in plain language are used to introduce the current state of knowledge. The Atlas is structured into six main themes: regional overview, physical geography, agriculture, hydrogeology, groundwater quality and perspectives for sustainable exploitation of the water resources. The fractured and granular aquifer system present in the Chaudière River watershed is representative of aquifer systems found typically on the north-northeastern portion of the Appalachians¿ drainage network in Quebec and New Brunswick. At the same time, it makes part of the selected Canadian aquifers studied by the GSC¿s Groundwater Geoscience Program.
