  • High water table areas = blue

(Note: See Old Lake Iroquois and Lake Iroquois History for location of Lake Iroquois; Oak Ridges Morraine area is shown in Yellow.)

  • Groundwater MYTH: groundwater is separate from streams,lakes and wetlands

  • REALITY: Groundwater is part of the drainage system that maintains the supply of water in streams,lakes and wetlands

It's easy to see the high water table and groundwater recharge areas so evident on the map and in the photos. Almost ALL of North Courtice is a Groundwater recharge and high water table area. One of the few remaining in South/Central Ontario. (But for how long, with all the development and infilling continuing...)
