- This project aims to assess the vulnerability of coastal aquifers in Nova Scotia to seawater intrusion caused by climate change over the next century.
- A detailed characterization of seawater intrusion vulnerability will be provided at the three case study locations in different geologic settings, Wolfville, Pugwash and a site to be determined in the Halifax area or the South Shore.
- Using the results of these case studies, in addition to existing provincial databases, a preliminary map will be developed indicating the relative vulnerability of seawater intrusion throughout the province.
- Progress reports of activities at field sites;
- New long-term observation wells in coastal settings;
- Monitoring data for the wells
- Useful and relevant saltwater intrusion model(s)
- Relevant vulnerability maps for the selected ACAS communities(s);
- Draft main report; and
- Final main report (these results will be incorporated into the Atlantic seawater intrusion report, the preparation of which is being led by PEI).
