Effects of drought in central and south Texas: Chapter C in Drought in the Southwest, 1942-56

The effects of drought upon ground-water storage and discharge, and upon streamflow, vary tremendously in the central third of Texas (the area from the Panhandle to the Gulf of Mexico). Extremes are represented by (a) the Llano Estacado, where the drought had negligible effect upon ground-water resources, which are being progressively depleted by...

Geology and ground-water resources of Hays County, Texas

The Edwards limestone of Early Cretaceous age is the chief aquifer for San Marcos Springs and about 160 other springs and wells in Hays County, along the Balcones fault zone in South-central Texas. Hays County is underlain by a basement of Paleozoic rocks; and in the southeastern part of the county the Hosston and Sligo formations of Early...

Geology and ground-water resources of Winkler County, Texas

Winkler County, in west Texas, is adjacent to the southeast corner of New Mexico. Most of the county lies in the Pecos Valley; the remainder, in the northeastern part of the county, is part of the Llano Estacado, or the High Plains. Its principal industries are those related to the production and refining of oil, but ranching also is an important...

Ground water geology of Edwards County, Texas

Edwards County occupies 2,075 square miles of the southern part of the Edwards Plateau in southwest Texas. In 1950 it had a population of 2,908. Its thin limestone soil supports the characteristic flora of a semiarid region. The county is underlain by nearly flat-lying beds of limestone and a few beds of shale and marl. The Glen Rose limestone of...

Ground-water geology of Bexar County, Texas

The investigation in Bexar County was part of a comprehensive study of a large area in south-central Texas underlain by the Edwards and associated limestones (Comanche Peak and Georgetown) of Cretaceous age. The limestones form an aquifer which supplies water to the city of San Antonio, several military installations, many industrial plants, and...

Ground-water geology of Karnes County, Texas

The exposed rocks and those underlying Karnes County dip toward the Gulf of Mexico at average rates ranging from 20 to more than 200 feet per mile. The oil fields are on structures associated with faulting; the effect of faulting on the occurrence of ground water has not been determined. The principal water-bearing formations, from oldest to...
