Depth to Groundwater Measured from Wells Completed in the Chicot and Evangeline (Undifferentiated) and Jasper Aquifers, Greater Houston Area, Texas, 2021

This dataset documents the depth to groundwater measured in wells screened in the Chicot aquifer, Evangeline aquifer, Jasper aquifer, Burkeville confining unit, Catahoula confining system, or a combination of multiple hydrogeologic units in the greater Houston area, Texas for 2021. The U.S. Geological Survey prepared this dataset in cooperation with the Harris?Galveston Subsidence District, City o

MODFLOW 6 model and ensemble used in the simulation of groundwater flow and land-surface subsidence in the northern part of the Gulf Coast aquifer system, 1897-2018

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the Harris-Galveston Subsidence District and Fort Bend Subsidence District, constructed a finite-difference numerical groundwater-flow model of the northern Gulf Coast aquifer region for 1897 through 2018 using MODFLOW 6 with the Newton formulation solver to simulate groundwater flow and land-surface subsidence. Model parameter estimation and

Chemical Composition of Bed Sediment and Water Samples Collected in the Houston Ship Channel or Patrick Bayou outlet near the Patrick Bayou Superfund Site, Deer Park, Texas, 2021

Patrick Bayou, a section of the Houston Ship Channel near Deer Park, Texas, has accumulated permitted industrial wastewater discharges, municipal wastewater treatment plant effluent, and stormwater runoff from adjacent industrial facilities and nearby urban and residential areas. These discharges are suspected to be the primary sources of the sediment contamination in the Patrick Bayou section of

Groundwater-Level Altitudes and Long-Term Groundwater-Level Changes in the Chicot and Evangeline (Undifferentiated) and Jasper Aquifers, Greater Houston area, Texas, 2021

The geochemical data included here were generated as part of the Earth Mapping Resources Initiative (Earth MRI), which was developed by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in response to a Federal directive calling on various Federal agencies to address potential vulnerabilities in the Nation's supply of critical mineral resources. Earth MRI is a partnership between the USGS, State Geological Survey

Data Tables Associated with an Analysis of the U.S. Geological Survey's Historical Water-use Data, 1985–2015

The datasets in this data release contain the results of an analysis of the U.S. Geological Survey's historical water-use data from 1985 to 2015. Data were assessed to determine the top category of water-use by volume. Data from groundwater, surface water, and total water (groundwater plus surface water) use were parsed by water type, and the top category of use by county or the geographic region

Transboundary Aquifer Assessment Program-Geospatial and Tabular Datasets Used in the Compilation of Physiography, Geology, Hydrogeology, and Water Quality Data for the Fort Bliss, Dona Ana Range, McGregor Range, and White Sands Missile Range Area, Texas a

The Transboundary Aquifer Assessment Act was established to systematically assess priority aquifers along the U.S.-Mexico international boundary. The priority aquifers that were specified include the Hueco-Mesilla Bolsons aquifer in Texas and New Mexico and its counterpart in Mexico, the Conejos-Médanos Aquifer system, and the Santa Cruz and San Pedro aquifers in Arizona (Texas Water Development B

Groundwater-Level Altitudes and Volatile and Semivolatile Organic Compound Concentrations at the Petro-Chemical Systems, Inc. (Turtle Bayou) Superfund Site, Liberty County, Texas, 2020

In 2020, the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, collected groundwater-level altitude data and water-quality samples from monitoring wells at the Petro-Chemical Systems, Inc. (Turtle Bayou) Superfund Site in Liberty County, Texas to evaluate the status of groundwater contamination at this previously remediated site. The dataset includes groundwater

Hydrodynamic Data for a Near-Shore Area of the Laguna Madre near South Padre Island, Texas, August 2021 to April 2022

The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the City of South Padre Island, Texas, collected base line hydrodynamic (tidal water level and current velocity) data for a near-shore area of the Laguna Madre near South Padre Island from August 18, 2021, to April 27, 2022. The data included in this data release are presented in a comma-separated values (csv) file format.

Waterborne Self-potential Data, Surface-water Temperature and Conductivity Logging data, and Electric Resistivity Tomography Data Measured at East Fork Poplar Creek, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, January-March 2022.

Geophysical data were collected on January 13, 2022, from a reach of East Fork Poplar Creek in Oak Ridge, Tennessee to gain a better understanding of surface water/groundwater exchanges. This data release contains the following types of data: waterborne self-potential (WaSP), and surface -water temperature and conductivity data collected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) from 220-meter (m) long

Historical (1940–2006) and recent (2019–20) aquifer slug test datasets used to model transmissivity and hydraulic conductivity of the Mississippi River Valley alluvial aquifer from recent (2018–20) air

The Mississippi River Valley alluvial aquifer (“alluvial aquifer”) is one of the most extensively developed aquifers in the United States. The alluvial aquifer is present at the land surface in parts of southeastern Missouri, northeastern Louisiana, western Mississippi, western Tennessee and Kentucky near the Mississippi River, and throughout eastern Arkansas. Historical (1940–2006) and recent (20

Water-Quality and Depth to Water for Groundwater Wells Primarily Completed in the Ogallala Aquifer within the North Plains Groundwater Conservation District, Texas Panhandle, 2012–13 and 2019–20

The Ogallala aquifer is contained in the Tertiary-age Ogallala Formation in the Texas Panhandle and is the primary water-bearing hydrogeologic unit of the High Plains aquifer system. The Ogallala aquifer is the primary source of water used for agricultural and municipal purposes in the Texas Panhandle. The Dockum aquifer is contained in the formations that compose the Triassic-age Dockum Group and

MODFLOW-NWT model used to simulate the potential effects of out-of-basin transfers for the Rush Springs aquifer in the Caddo Nation of Oklahoma jurisdictional area, western Oklahoma

A previously published MODFLOW 2005 groundwater model ( of the Rush Springs aquifer was modified to assess the effects of groundwater withdrawals rates on spring discharge, streamflow, and groundwater availability pertaining to the Rush Springs aquifer in and near the Caddo Nation of Oklahoma Tribal jurisdictional area.
