The Provincial Groundwater Monitoring Network is a partnership program with all 36 Ontario conservation authorities and 10 municipalities (in areas not covered by a conservation authority) to collect and manage ambient (baseline) groundwater level and quality information from key aquifers located across Ontario.   Search and view groundwater level and chemistry data from monitoring wells that are part of the Provincial Groundwater Monitoring Network (PGMN) Program. Precipitation data (rain) is also available for some PGMN sites. Full dataset is available through the Open Data Catalogue.

Layers of aquifers make up a groundwater basin. During an average year, California's alluvial groundwater basins and subbasins contribute approximately 38 percent toward the State's total water supply. Groundwater dis-charge may be exclusive to wells that are distributed throughout a given watershed or groundwater basin, or it may discharge to down-gradient stream segments and lakes, springs, or (via the underground) directly to neighboring groundwater basins. Of most interest to us is the effect of farm practices on groundwater pollutionCited by:

groundwater resource in Ontario need be degraded by a waste disposal site or facility. However, there are subsurface units that contain groundwater that is unlikely to be used for water supplies. This may be because the groundwater in these units has naturally poorFile Size: 46KB.   Groundwater is a component of the water cycle; it comes from the infiltration of precipitation through voids in soil and rocks. Once all the available space is filled with water, it is said to be saturated. Groundwater flows through aquifers, which are geological formations made up of granular or fractured material from which a sufficient. GROUNDWATER IN THE AGGREGATE INDUSTRY Groundwater is a renewable resource that is in constant motion as part of the hydrologic cycle.
