Nearly 500 wells draw water from Quadra Island Aquifers, but we know little of their extent, how much water they hold, or how fast water from above recharges them. This current fall term, Dr. Lesemann’s hydrogeology course has been using drill log data from several hundred wells to construct a 3D model of south Quadra aquifers and the geological materials they reside in. They will present that map in relation to an accurate, 3D, high-resolution LIDAR map of the surface and discuss its implications.

This talk will be highly educational, thoroughly thought-provoking, and well worth attending.

As the Water Security Team’s long-term studies unfold, new kinds of information will lead to deeper and more useful understanding of island water supplies. This will inform Quadra ICAN’s aim to produce rational, reasonable, community-based strategic plans for resilience and sustainability in the rapidly changing, increasingly uncertain future ahead.

Donations will be gratefully accepted.
