AbstractThis hydrogeological study of the Summerland Basin, British Columbia, is based on existing groundwater records and reports, chemical analysis of groundwater samples from springs, hydrogeological observations, evaluation of the basin groundwater budget, and computer modelling of groundwater flow and heat transport. No data was available from the deeper parts of the basin, and no identification could be made anywhere of water which had come from great depths. At present the dominant amount of groundwater recharge enters and discharges from shallow flow systems, and the natural groundwater flow through the deep basin across an 8-km section is estimated to be 3L/s.
