Abstract/Description or Keywords The population in the Englishman River Watershed is over 50% reliant on groundwater. As water demand pressures grow, sustainable water management requires knowledge of the degree of surface water-groundwater (SW/GW) interaction within a watershed. Geochemical methods can provide valuable information on seasonal aquifer contribution and SW/GW interactions. Developing geochemical tools that can place constraints on these complex systems will aid development of hydrogeological models, which can be used to support decision makers in water allocation. This open file provides initial geochemical results from a groundwater well and river sampling program in the Englishman River watershed carried out in 2010-2011.
