RI9 Ground-Water Levels in Delaware January, 1962 - June, 1966

RI9 Ground-Water Levels in Delaware January, 1962 - June, 1966
Publication Type:
Report of Investigation
Publication Date:
Apr 1967
Authors:
Woodruff, K.D.
Abstract:

This report deals with fluctuations in nine observation wells during the period 1960 - 1966. These wells are part of a state-wide ground-water monitoring network and are located in areas of little or no pumping. Eight of the wells respond to water-table conditions; the ninth well appears to reflect artesian conditions.
Although precipitation throughout Delaware was generally below average during the period covered by this report, annual average water levels declined very little in the wells reported on here. There is some evidence, however, for a lowering of water-table levels by three to four feet during the period 1960 - 1962.
