August 31, 2018

Université du Québec à Rimouski has received $1.2M from the Government of Quebec to undertake a study of groundwater in the Bas-Saint-Laurent and Gaspésie regions. Over the next three years, researchers from UQAR will map regional properties and examine the quantity, quality, and vulnerability of groundwater resources. The project will see the team conduct a pilot project in the Gaspé Peninsula to create a preliminary estimate of groundwater resources, as well as developing a report with recommendations on the relevance of completing a comprehensive project for the province. UQAR
