New York and New England carbonate-rock aquifers

Map showing the New York and New England carbonate-rock aquifers

Detailed Description

Consolidated bedrock aquifers in this area are in consolidated rocks of sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic origin. These consolidated rocks yield water primarily from bedding planes, fractures, joints, and faults, rather than from intergranular pores. Carbonate rocks generally yield more water than other types of consolidated rocks because carbonate rocks are subject to dissolution by slightly acidic ground water.
