Aggregate hydraulic conductivity data from site investigations in south-central Saskatchewan, Canada

Description: Pleistocene-aged glacial till aquitards are important shallow hydrogeological units across much of the Northern Hemisphere. Characterizing the hydrogeological properties of these aquitards at a regional scale is important for land use planning and resource management. Here, 606 hydraulic conductivity data points from 20 sites collected from 26 reports are compiled. The referencing information, spatial location, hydraulic conductivity test type, and any other information associated with the hydraulic conductivity data is included where possible. After filtering the data for reliability and outliers, 393 data points from 15 sites are identified as representative hydraulic conductivity values of glacial till aquitards in Saskatchewan, Canada.
