The test program carried out in March and April 1961 was to evaluate the groundwater potential of the area on the west bank of the Red Deer River north of the City of Red Deer. It was hoped that a groundwater supply of at least one million Imperial gallons existed.
In this report, the same numbering of the test sites and test holes has been maintained as that used in the private report submitted by the Research Council of Alberta, Groundwater Division, to the City Engineer of the City of Red Deer on February 3, 1961. In total, three test sites have been investigated by means of shallow drilling. The locations of the test sites are as follows:
Site 1: NE 1/4 of Sec. 21; SE 1/4 of Sec. 28 and NE 1/4 of Sec. 28, Tp. 38, R. 27, W. 4th Mer.
Site IV: SW 1/4 of Sec. 34, Tp. 38, R. 27, W. 4th Mer.
Site V: NE 1/4 of Sec. 33, Tp. 38, R. 27, W. 4th Mer.
