Fraser Valley Hydrogeology & Water Well Drilling
Understanding Fraser Valley Hydrogeology and how it affects water wells. Water is essential for human life and it is increasingly becoming one of the worlds’ most important commodity. Despite the fact that 70% of the earth’s surface is covered in water, only about 1% of the total available water is readily suitable for human consumption.
According to the Government Department of Environment and Climate Change Canada, about 50% of water use is coming from residential households, while 35% is coming from industrial and commercial uses being the remaining 15% associated with leakage.

- Oil Sands Operation Department
Oil sands are a natural mixture of water, sand, clay and bitumen, originally found in underground deposits. The main characteristics of the oil bitumen is that it is generally too thick, heavy and viscous to flow or be pumped out of the oil sand mix without being diluted or heated, when exposed to room temperature.
Oil sands are present in different locations around the globe, such as the United States, Russia and Venezuela, but the largest and most developed deposit is located in Alberta, known as the Athabasca deposit.
According to the platform Canada´s Oils Sands, Alberta’s oil sands lie under 142,000 km2 of land, of which about 97% of the oil sands surface area are recoverable only by in situ (drilling) methods, which require very little surface land disturbance.
