Hydrogeologic framework of the Puget Sound aquifer system, Washington and British Columbia

March 1, 1998

This report presents the generalized hydrogeologic framework of the Puget Sound aquifer system in Washington and British Columbia. The framework includes a conceptual model of the division of the aquifer system into regional hydrogeologic units for describing on a regional basis the ground-water flow in the system. The conceptual model is based on an analysis of historical data and on results of cross-sectional numerical models of ground-water flow.
