Increasing concerns about the cumulative impacts and sustainability of development in southern Ontario, particularly with respect to groundwater and surface water, requires an improved understanding of the geology, hydrogeology, and in particular the connectivity and continuity of subcrop and subsurface. Paleozoic bedrock underlies all of south-western Ontario and the southern region of south-central Ontario, and forms prominent geologic features. Improved geologic knowledge and mapping of these rocks supports natural resource extraction (gypsum, salt, gas, oil, aggregate), low level nuclear waste disposal (Ontario Power Generation 2017), exploitation of geothermal energy, and sustainable waste disposal. Also, because bedrock heterogeneity constrains and controls penetration of meteoric water into the subsurface, management of groundwater for agricultural, industrial, municipal and domestic supply will be enhanced by an improved understanding of the geometry and physical characteristics of bedrock formations.
