    confined aquifers are also used in areas where the surficial sand aquifer is present. All bedrock aquifers in Todd County are under confined conditions. Most bedrock wells are in the southeastern part of the county and the remainder are on the eastern and northern borders. WATER TABLE AND POTENTIOMETRIC SURFACES OF MAJOR AQUIFERS. 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 of , The Maine Geological Survey used this data to produce Significant Sand and Gravel Aquifers Maps.

    The Ground Water Resources Committee, a subcommittee of the LAAC, produced a map depicting areas of ground water significance at regional scale (,) (see Figure ) to give decision makers the basis for considering ground water as a factor in land acquisition under the Preservation Act (LAAC ).

    Groundwater flows slowly through water-bearing formations (aquifers) at different rates. In some places, where groundwater has dissolved limestone to form caverns and large openings, its rate of flow can be relatively fast but this is exceptional. Many terms are used to describe the nature and extent of the groundwater resource. Seawater intrusion (SWI) is one of the most challenging and widespread environmental problems that threaten the quality and sustainability of fresh groundwater resources in coastal aquifers.

Masterson and Donald A. Size: 7MB. ABSTRACT. The glacially derived aquifer systems of southeastern Massachusetts compose the largest groundwater reservoir in the State.

Population increases, land-use changes, and climate change in this area could lead to three primary environmental effects that relate directly to groundwater resources—(1) increases in pumping that could adversely affect environmentally.

[John P Masterson; Donald A Walter; Geological Survey (U.S.); Massachusetts. Department of Environmental Protection.]. This data set represents the extent of the Southeastern Coastal Plain aquifer system in Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina.

Purpose: These data delineate the areal extent of the Southeastern Coastal Plain aquifer system as defined in the 'Ground Water Atlas of the United States' (U.S. Geological Survey HA ). The Southeastern Coastal Plain aquifer system underlies an area of more thansquare miles in Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida and South Carolina.

The aquifer system ranks 15th in the nation as a source of groundwater for public supply, with about million gallons per day pumped for this and other uses in Pretest ground-water levels were monitored prior to the start of each aquifer test using pressure transducers and data loggers.

Ground-water levels in wells 35N, 35N, and 35N were monitored prior to the aquifer test in the upper con˜ned zone (well 35N).

In coastal aquifers, water quality degradation resulting from saline water intrusion is a common issue of concern. Growing demands from industry, energy production, urban population centres and agriculture place an increasing strain on the quantity and quality of water resources.

Coastal aquifers serve as major sources for freshwater supply in many countries around the world, especially in arid and semi-arid zones.

Many coastal areas are also heavily urbanized, a fact that makes the need for freshwater even more acute. Coastal aquifers are highly sensitive to disturbances. Inappropriate management of a coastal aquifer may lead to its destruction as a Reviews: 2.
