The dataset was developed as part of the Risk Assessment Framework for Coastal Bedrock Aquifers project completed by Simon Fraser University, for the BC Ministry of Environment and the BC Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. Features in the dataset show the vulnerability of coastal aquifers on the Gulf Islands to salt water intrusion, based on their intrinsic susceptibility (aquifer properties such as distance from the coast and topography) and groundwater pumping (well density and type of use). This link refers to the Master of Science Thesis Report prepared by Jeanette Klassen in 2015 as a component of the collaborative study between Simon Fraser University and the Province of British Columbia.

A measure of the intrinsic susceptibility of an aquifer representing the tendency or likelihood for contaminants to reach a specified position in the groundwater system after introduction at some location above the uppermost aquifer. The method used to create the dataset is described in the metadata associated with the dataset. The dataset is a general assessment of the vulnerability of the hydrogeological unit considered as a whole. It features the local and regional qualifiers in a controlled vocabulary list referring to the extent where the vulnerability value is valid.

The dataset was developed as part of the Risk Assessment Framework for Coastal Bedrock Aquifers project completed by Simon Fraser University, for the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. Features in the dataset show the vulnerability of coastal aquifers on Salt Spring Island to salt water intrusion, based on their intrinsic susceptibility (aquifer properties such as distance from the coast and topography), groundwater pumping (well density and type of use) and coastal hazard (coastal morphology and vulnerability to flooding from storm surges). This link refers to the Master of Science Thesis Report prepared by Jeanette Klassen in 2015 as a component of the collaborative study between Simon Fraser University and the Province of British Columbia.

The Aquifer Vulnerability Index (AVI) is a method of assessing the vulnerability of aquifers to surface contaminants in Alberta. An aquifer is a geological formation that is permeable enough to transmit sufficient quantities of water to possible to support the development of water wells. In the assessment of aquifer vulnerability to potential contamination, the depth to the aquifer and the types of geological materials above them are considered. For example, aquifers closer to the surface overlain with pervious surface materials are more vulnerable to contaminants, as compared to aquifers found deeper and covered with a thick layer of impervious material.

Polygon features represent developed ground water aquifers in BC (that have been mapped). Most aquifer boundaries are delineated based on geology, hydrology and topographic information. Some aquifer boundaries stop at the border of BC mapsheet boundaries due to resource or data constraints at the time of mapping.

Legally defined Local Trust Area polygons were drawn from metes and bounds descriptions as written in Letters Patent for the Local Trust Areas in the province of British Columbia. A polygon dataset that includes all of the administrative areas currently in the Administrative Boundaries Management System (ABMS) is available here. A complimentary point dataset that defines the administrative areas is also available available here.
