Water withdrawal for a specific purpose, such as domestic use, irrigation, or industrial processing.
Changes in water levels and storage in the High Plains Aquifer, predevelopment to 2009 [ More info] Summarizes graphically the areas where water levels have dropped, and by how much, in this extensive underground water reservoir that covers several states in the mid-continent.
Drought and deluge: Effects of recent climate variability on groundwater levels in eastern Arkansas [ More info] Water levels in wells completed in the Mississippi River Valley alluvial aquifer and the Sparta aquifer in eastern Arkansas respond to variability associated with annual precipitation.
Endocrine Disruption Found in Fish Exposed to Municipal Wastewater [ More info] Research findings and examples of application to real problems--cause and potential effects of wastewater on fish in streams is explored.
Estimated freshwater withdrawals in Oklahoma [ More info] Freshwater withdrawal estimates for Oklahoma by source and category. Withdrawal data from ground water and surface water for domestic, commercial and agricultural use.
Ground-water data for the Nation [ More info] National Water Information System (NWIS) real-time data on selected ground water sites, ground water level data, site inventory of wells, test holes, drains, springs and excavations and ground water-quality data for the United States.
Possible effects of groundwater pumping on surface water in the Verde Valley, Arizona [ More info] We applied a groundwater model to simulate effects of groundwater pumping and artificial recharge on surface water in this area. Results show effects of pumping or recharge on streamflow.
