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.
