Mount Laurel aquifer
This report documents the methods and results derived from subsurface exploration, monitoring well installation, and hydraulic testing conducted during the project "Groundwater and Saline Water Intrusion Monitoring Network Infrastructure Improvements: Kent County, Delaware". This project was focused on the aquifers in Kent County that supply water to wells for domestic, public, irrigation, and commercial uses as well as provide base flow to local streams. From shallowest to deepest, they are the Columbia, Milford, Frederica, Federalsburg, Cheswold, Piney Point, Rancocas, and Mt.
In cooperation with DelDOT, DGS is monitoring groundwater at stormwater infiltration best management practices (BMPs) to characterize the fate and transport of chloride in stormwater BMPs.
The Delaware Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, completed a groundwater-monitoring, infrastructure-construction, and data-collection project in southern New Castle and northern Kent Counties, Delaware.
The DGS has been a data provider for the National Ground-Water Monitoring Network (NGWMN) since 2016. NGWMN is a consortium of state and local agencies and the U.S.
