This report summarizes these factors for major aquifers in Area 1 Colbert, Franklin, Lauderdale, Lawrence, Limestone, Madison, and Morgan Counties (see plate 1). Purpose and Scope The purpose of this report is to describe the geohydrology of the major aquifers and their susceptibility to contamination from the surface.

GeologicCited by: 3. The major aquifers in the study area (Blount, Cherokee, DeKalb, Etowah, Jackson, and Marshall Counties in northern Alabama) are the Knox-Shady, Tuscumbia-Fort Payne, and Pottsville aquifers. These aquifers are sources of public water supply and are recharged in each of the six counties.

U.S. Geological Survey Water-Resources Cited by: The USGS annually monitors groundwater levels in thousands of wells in the United States. Groundwater level data are collected and stored as either discrete field-water-level measurements or as continuous time-series data from automated recorders.

Data from some of the continuous record stations are relayed to USGS offices nationwide through telephone lines or by satellite. Twenty-seven of 36 south Alabama counties receive all of their public water supplies from ground-water sources.

Alabama has 20 major aquifers that supply water from the land surface to depths approaching 3, feet. The deepest public water supply well is constructed in the Tuscaloosa Group aquifer in Dale County (2, feet).

Geohydrology definition is - a science that deals with the character, source, and mode of occurrence of underground water. 2 Virginia Department of Health, Washington Highway, Ashland, VA abstract. The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Virginia Department of Health, is conducting a study to determine the susceptibility to near-surface contamination of regional aquifers that serve as sources for public water supplies.

The Geological Survey of Alabama has estimated Alabama's groundwater supply to be trillion gallons of freshwater stored in 19 major aquifers or aquifer systems across the state. Most groundwater is considered to be of good quality, except for some highly mineralized waters underlying the Blackland Prairie area of west Alabama.

Geochemical data also suggest a high degree of mixing of meteoric and carbonate groundwater in the surficial aquifer.

Particularly, groundwater is depended on as a principle source of drinking water. It is essential to plan. Geochemical characterization of shallow ground water in the Eutaw aquifer, Montgomery, Alabama Article in JAWRA Journal of the American Water Resources Association 40(4).

The aquifer polygons data file contains significant sand and gravel aquifers (glacial deposits that are a significant ground water resource) for Maine mapped at a scale ofThe Maine Geological Survey used this data to produce Significant Sand and. Unconfined aquifers have no impermeable barriers to the land surface; consequently they are susceptible to contamination from the surface.

In contrast, confined aquifers are overlain by aquitards (Figure 2) and exist under hydrostatic pressure which increases with File Size: 2MB. sediment. Figure 1, the countywide water-table surface, is a combination of data from these two interpolations.

Thus, in the surficial sands, the countywide water-table map (Figure 1) and the surficial sand water-table (Figure 2) are identical. Buried Sand Aquifers The potentiometric surface is a contoured map of the water levels measured in wells.

Contamination The entry of contaminants into aquifers causes great and irreversible damage to groundwater supplies.

Because the surface area of aquifer pores is so large, once contamination occurs, complete cleanup is impossible, and even partial clean up requires great expenditure.
