Groundwater Wells in the Sylvan Lake Watershed
October 29, 2013 Leave a comment
The Town of Sylvan Lake, the Summer Villages, and all other domestic and agricultural users rely on groundwater.
This Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resources Development website provides access to information on water wells withing the Sylvan Lake watershed.
Use the map control tools to zoom in on an area of interest and click on a well to discover the ID number. Then click on the ID link to call up the driller’s report on the well stratigraphy and the result of the pump flow test, if any.

Try out this useful ESRD database. Find your own well, and those of others in your neighborhood. Discover the depth from which your water is pumped. It your water source connected to Sylvan Lake itself? Are you really drinking lake water?
The Town of Sylvan Lake is by far the largest single water user although some of its production wells are located outside the official watershed boundary.
