the shallow aquifer system beneath the city and to bet-ter understand the distribution of fresh ground water, its potential use, and its susceptibility to contamination (Johnson, ). Purpose and scope A revision of the conceptual hydrogeologic framework of the shallow aquifer system at Virginia Beach is presented in this report. Introduction. Regional‐scale classification of groundwater systems provides a basis for understanding and management of groundwater resources (Barthel ; Dennehy et al. ).In the United States (U.S.), two classification systems have been widely used: an approach developed by Heath (, , ), and subsequent work by the U.S. Geological Survey . Hydrogeologic framework of the study area. (A) Subcrop formations and major structures present in the Michigan Basin—Lower Peninsula of Michigan (after Dorr & Eschman ; Fisher et al. A Regional Hydrogeologic Assessment (RHA) is a systematic study of a multi-county region's geologic and ground-water resources. Geologic studies focus on near-surface deposits. Ground-water studies include flow systems, aquifer capacity, ground-water chemistry, and sand and gravel deposits. Sensitivity of near ground-water systems is estimated.

The purpose of this project is to provide site-specific hydrogeologic data on the Floridan aquifer system (FAS) at three sites in support of the Lake Okeechobee ASR Pilot collected from the testing and monitoring of these test wells will be instrumental in site selection for. EXW-1 was left idle until a planned hour APT could be conducted at the site. HYDROGEOLOGIC FRAMEWORK Two major aquifer systems underlie this site: the Surficial Aquifer System (SAS), the intermediate confining unit, and the Floridan Aquifer System (FAS) with the FAS being the focus of this test well program. For the Middle Rio Grande-Santa Fe Group aquifer system, the in- formation needed to formulate sustainable policies requires a reliable quantitative description of the regional groundwater flow system, in- cluding the hydrogeologic framework as well as patterns and trends in extraction and recharge. tapping the Upper Floridan aquifer southeast of Lake Seminole, Decatur County, Georgia.

This hydrologic system, referred to as the Glen Canyon Group Mill Creek (GCMC) hydrologic system, was chosen in Phase 2 of the project as the setting for the quantification of the water resources available to the City, resulting in a preliminary global water budget of the GCMC hydrologic system.

The hydrogeologic framework underlying the study area consists of Eocene or younger-age rocks and makes up the surficial aquifer system, the intermediate confining unit, and the Flori-dan aquifer system (fig. 2). This multilayered system consists of several permeable zones interbedded with. Four types of bedrock aquifers in 12 water-management basins identified by the Indiana Natural Resources Commission (INRC) in Indiana were identified by the USGS in U.S. Geological Survey Water-Resources Investigations Report (Fenelon and others, ).

Mississippian and younger geologic units form a regional system of aquifers and confining units in the central Lower Peninsula of Michigan. The area of the regional aquifer system is ab square miles.

The aquifer system consists of three bedrock aquifers, which are separated by Hydrogeologic framework of the Michigan basin regional aquifier system. book units. Bedrock aquifers and confining units are overlain by surficial glaciofluvial aquifers.

It is part of an aquifer system found in Mississippian or younger stratigraphic units in the Michigan Basin.

The aquifer covers approximat square miles (28, km 2) and is estimated to contain 4 cubic miles (17 km 3) of water, approximately 50 feet (15 m) to feet ( m). Get this from a library.

The Yakima River basin aquifer system underlies about 6, square miles in south-central Washington. The aquifer system consists of basin-fill deposits occurring in six structural-sedimentary basins, the Columbia River Basalt Group (CRBG), and generally older bedrock.

The basin-fill deposits were divided into 19 hydrogeologic units, the CRBG was divided into three. Synthesis of hydrogeologic, hydrochemical, and isotopic data suggests that an area of at least 4, square miles (including 10 intermontane valleys) is hydraulically integrated into one ground-water basin, the Ash Meadows basin, by interbasin movement of ground water through the widespread carbonate aquifer.

Geologic units that form the Michigan Basin regional aquifer system are Early Mississippian through Jurassic age bedrock units, and unconsolidated glacial deposits of Pleistocene age. The aquifer system consists of six formations that have formal stratigraphic names and three geologic units that have informal names (figs.

2 and 3). The Michigan Basin is also an important area for underground waste injection including brine disposal into deep saline aquifers.

Current work suggests that the Michigan Basin has the potential for significant CO 2 sequestration in deep saline aquifers. Detailed Description.

The hydrogeologic study should: 1) Describe the regional hydrogeologic conditions. 2) Identify whether the discharge will occur within a designated wellhead protection area. 3) Determine whether the discharge is to a usable aquifer, an unusable aquifer, or groundwater not in an aquifer.

The model domain was laterally bound by a continuous specified‐head boundary, formed from lakes Michigan, Huron, St. Clair, and Erie, with the St. Clair and Detroit River connecting channels. The model was developed to quantify regional ground water flow in the aquifer systems using independently determined recharge estimates.

The sedimentary rock aquifers are good storage areas that can be drilled for domestic and industrial water supplies. Because the sandstone and porous limestone layers of Michigan are in a saucerlike basin (i.e., the Michigan Basin), most of the Lower Peninsula does have the potential for springs and artesian, or naturally flowing, wells.

As the. The relation of major aquifers and aquitards along basin margins is an important control on fluid migration. Figure 4 compares the hydrostratigraphy of regional aquifers and aquitards in the Illinois and Michigan basins, highlighting the Late Devonian black shales.
