Nechako Aquifer & Wells

Curious where the Nechako Aquifer is located, now that a new report (article) has indicated that a hazardous chemical spill causing the loss of any of the city’s high capacity wells, “would be catastrophic for the city in terms of quality of life, sustainable economic growth, and environmental damage”?

Here‘s a map, with all the data for the aquifer and its ground water wells. City wells = star, other wells = circle.
