Water levels in eight wells were used to define groundwater conditions in the Clayton aquifer in southwestern Georgia. In this area, water in the Clayton aquifer is confined and influenced mostly by pumping. Hydrographs for selected wells (below) illustrate monthly mean water levels for the period of record. The hydrographs show periodic upward or downward trends that reflect changes in pumping. During 2010, about 23 million gallons per day (Mgal/d) were withdrawn from the Clayton aquifer in Georgia, primarily for irrigation and public-supply withdrawals (Lawrence, 2016).
