A Grave Mistake

Groundwater is an important source of drinking water in Canada. About 30 % of the Canadian population relies on groundwater as their source of drinking water and the majority of these users live in rural areas.

Back to the Future

In Canada, floods are a common phenomenon and overflowing conditions can be caused by snowmelt, runoff, ice jams, heavy rainfall, storm surges or the failure of a natural or man-made dam.

Get the Groundwater Picture

Although we do not see it, a large portion of the Earth’s fresh water is stored in the ground. Groundwater makes up about 30% of all fresh water resources on the planet. In comparison, surface water reporesents only 0.3% of the Earth’s fresh water resources.

Hydrologic Bank Account

Hydrologists studying a watershed may develop a hydrologic budget in order to understand how much water enters and leaves a specific watershed and how much is available for different purposes.

Projet WET Canada est le programme officiel d’éducation sur l’eau pour les jeunes de l’Association Canadienne des Ressources Hydriques (ACRH). L’ACRH chapeaute le programme Projet WET au Canada depuis 1996 à travers un contrat avec la Fondation (Internationale) Project WET.

Le projet WET Canada est un programme éducatif sur l’eau qui est amusant, pratique et basé sur l’enquête, approprié pour les élèves de la maternelle à la 12e année. Il est conçu pour être utilisé par les éducateurs formels et non formels pour enrichir les programmes provinciaux et territoriaux existants en sciences, en éducation environnementale et de plein air, en études sociales, en arts du langage, en mathématiques, en santé et bien-être et en éducation aux choix de carrière. Il est adapté pour des environnements d’apprentissage tant intérieurs et qu’extérieurs. Les éducateurs et éducatrices  obtiennent le guide d’activités de base du projet WET dans le cadre d’un atelier de certification de développement professionnel dispensé par des animateurs et animatrices pleinement qualifiés du projet WET. Des ateliers sont disponibles partout au Canada.
