The Lower Floridan aquifer at Richmond Hill, Brunswick, and St Marys, Ga., has permeable intervals of freshwater to slightly brackish water that could provide water users with an alternative water supply to supplement water use from the Upper Floridan aquifer. Strong similarities in water-level fluctuations for the Upper and Lower Floridan.

Are you one of 30 million Americans whose drinking-water supply relies on groundwater from the glacial aquifer system? A new USGS study assesses the quality of untreated groundwater from this critical water resource, which underlies parts of 25 northern U.S. states.

In general, sand and gravel deposits form good aquifers for transmitting groundwater, while silt, clay and glacial till form aquitards, which have limited capacity for groundwater flow. Aquifers separated by aquitards can be considered separate bodies of water from a water rights perspective.

Temporary State Commission on Tug Hill.; Geological Survey (U.S.)]. Problem - The Tug Hill glacial aquifer is a mile long, sand and gravel deposit that occupies mi 2 along the western side of the Tug Hill Plateau in northern New York.

The northern part of the aquifer is designated a sole-source aquifer by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The aquifer is a relatively shallow, unconfined system that readily interacts with streams that flow over it.

Abstract. Two water-production systems, one for the Village of Pulaski and the other for the Villages of Sandy Creek and Lacona in Oswego County, New York, withdraw water from the Tug Hill glacial-drift aquifer, a regional sand and gravel aquifer along the western flank of the Tug Hill Plateau, and provide the sole source of water for these villages.

Hydrogeology (hydro-meaning water, and -geology meaning the study of the Earth) is the area of geology that deals with the distribution and movement of groundwater in the soil and rocks of the Earth's crust (commonly in aquifers).The terms groundwater hydrology, geohydrology, and hydrogeology are often used interchangeably.
