The second painting in The Great Delta Bog series is "Aquafier" ~ underground areas of soil and or rock where substantial quantities of water are found. The Great Delta Bog links two diverse aquatic ecosystems: The Fraser River and Boundary Bay. If you visit the Watershed Park in Delta you can find the old pumphouse and cistern used to tap into the springs. There is still a constant supply of water to this day in East Delta which you can see in the irrigation ditches. "The water would have to come from an aquafier . . . there is no other system / source that could supply it, because it's not from runoff from the hills" John Savage.
