Field data from brief aquifer tests of domestic wells penetrating bedrock in the Appalachian Plateau of New York and best fits to theoretical curves of aquifer properties

July 23, 2021

This data release contains observed water-level recovery data in 52 wells, matched to theoretical type curves defined by postulated values of aquifer transmissivity and storage, that together constitute the database for USGS Scientific Investigations Report 2020-5087, "Transmissivity Estimated from Brief Aquifer Tests of Domestic Wells and Compared with Bedrock Lithofacies and Position on Hillsides in the Appalachian Plateau of New York." The water-level recovery data were collected after 13 to 132 seconds of pumping. Five of the wells were also test-pumped for longer periods. The wells tested penetrated bedrock outside of major valleys in the eastern part of the Susquehanna River watershed in New York.
