U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the U.S. Air Force Civil Engineering Center conducted short-term aquifer tests at 11 wells to estimate hydraulic properties in the Fountain Creek alluvial aquifer, in El Paso County, Colorado. Data were collected in July 2019 over three days. Single-hole pumping and recovery tests were completed at five wells, and multiple single-hole displacement (solid slug) tests were conducted at all 11 wells. This data release contains water-level data collected at various time intervals (0.25 seconds, 0.5 seconds, and variable during a manual test with a stopwatch) and well-discharge rates for the aquifer tests in comma separated value (CSV) files for the 34 tests analyzed. All water-level displacement data for a given well are provided in a single CSV file for the well. Data are further categorized by the type of aquifer test used for data collection (slug or pumping). Well logs, graphs of the test data, and plots of analytical solutions are included in file, "FCAA_aquifer_testing_description_plots_vFINAL.pdf."
