Upper Floridan: Southwest

Water levels in 17 wells were used to define groundwater conditions in the Upper Floridan aquifer in southwestern Georgia. Water typically is confined in this area of the Upper Floridan aquifer; however, water is unconfined in areas where no sediments overlie the aquifer (typically to the north and west). Water levels in this area are affected by changes in precipitation and 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 surplus or deficits in rainfall, respectively, and changes in pumping.
