WSA Regina 96-02

Observation well 96-02pz was completed in 1996 into the Zehner Aquifer at a depth of 71.32 metres below ground surface. The well was completed in support of the City of Regina’s expansion of the Boggy Creek wellfield and its intended purpose was to monitor a nearby production well.

The hydrograph for 96-02 shows that groundwater levels generally ranged between 593 and 601 metres above sea level between 2010 and 2022. The hydrograph also shows a gradual decline in water levels between 2012 and 2022. The maximum water level was 600.5 metres above sea level, which occurred in Fall 2012, while the minimum water level of 593 metres above sea level was encountered in mid-2021. A sudden decrease in the water level in 2015 was due to emergency groundwater use by the City of Regina. This monitoring well is affected by various other pumping wells in the area.

Water quality in 96-02 is of the calcium-bicarbonate/sulphate type with a sum of ion concentration of 884 mg/L.
