Upper Floridan: Albany-Dougherty County
Water levels in 6 wells were used to define groundwater conditions in the Upper Floridan aquifer near Albany, Georgia (Dougherty County map). Water levels in this area are affected by changes in precipitation and pumping (Gordon and others, 2012). 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 surplus or deficits in rainfall, respectively, and changes in pumping.
