Louisiana Ground-Water Map No.13: Hydrogeology and Potentiometric Surface of the Sparta Aquifer in Northern Louisiana, October 1996

This report describes the thickness and areal extent of the Sparta aquifer, identifies sands within the fresh-water extent of the aquifer, and presents data and a map that illustrate the generalized potentiometric surface (water levels) during October 1996. The report includes a detailed geophysical log, structure contour maps, hydrogeologic...

Public Water-Supply Systems and Associated Water Use in Tennessee, 1995

An inventory of public water-supply systems in Tennessee in 1995 indicated that 530 public water-supply systems supplied water to 4.42 million people, or 84 percent of Tennessee's population. Public-supply water withdrawals totaled 779 million gallons per day, 64 percent (500 million gallons per day) of which was from surface-water sources. All of...

Water use and quality of fresh surface-water resources in the Barataria-Terrebonne Basins, Louisiana

Approximately 170 Mgal/d (million gallons per day) of ground- and surface-water was withdrawn from the Barataria-Terrebonne Basins in 1995. Of this amount, surface water accounted for 64 percent ( 110 MgaVd) of the total withdrawal rates in the basins. The largest surface-water withdrawal rates were from Bayou Lafourche ( 40 Mgal/d), Bayou Boeuf...

Analysis of the low-flow characteristics of streams in Louisiana

The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development, Office of Public Works, used geologic maps, soils maps, precipitation data, and low-flow data to define four hydrographic regions in Louisiana having distinct low-flow characteristics. Equations were derived, using regression analyses, to...

Quality of water in the Red River alluvial aquifer, Shreveport, to the mouth of the Black River, Louisiana

Chemical analyses of water samples from 296 wells in the Red River alluvial aquifer indicate that the ground water in the valley is generally hard (more than 120 milligrams per liter) and has a high iron concentration (greater than 6,000 micrograms per liter). The predominant ions found in the water were calcium and bicarbonate. However, in places...
