Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
In the fall of 2012, a groundwater study was carried out by the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) in the Haldimand sector of Gaspé, Québec, to assess any potential links between a petroleum reservoir, whose potential is being evaluated, and the shallow fractured rock aquifer system. For this study, observation wells were installed, groundwater and surface water were sampled and analyzed, and the GSC collected geophysical logs in the wells (the focus of this report). These results are being interpreted together to develop a conceptual and numerical model of the aquifer system. The understanding of groundwater flow conditions in this context will allow INRS to make an assessment of environmental risk for groundwater quality related to petroleum industry activities.
