Borehole hydrogeologic-unit top-surface altitude, aquifer hydraulic property, and groundwater-sample chloride data for the Virginia Eastern Shore from 1906 through 2019

October 8, 2021

A hydrogeologic framework was developed by USGS during 2016-19 to describe the groundwater system on the Virginia Eastern Shore. This USGS data release contains text files of (1) interpreted borehole hydrogeologic-unit top-surface altitudes, (2) summary values of previously documented estimates of aquifer hydraulic properties, and (3) groundwater-sample chloride concentrations and well summary statistics. In addition are shapefiles of altitude contours for 10 hydrogeologic-unit top surfaces, and for the groundwater 250 milligrams per liter chloride-concentration surface.
