Abstract

The upper Housatonic River basin covers an area of about 700 square miles in western Connecticut and includes the towns of Bridgewater, Brookfield, Canaan, Cornwall, Kent, New Fairfield, New Hilford, North Canaan, Salisbury, Sharon, Sherman and Warren and parts of Bethel, Bethlehem, Danbury, Goshen, Litchfield, Morris, Newtown, Norfolk, Ridgefield, Roxbury, Southbury, Torrington and Washington. The U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the Connecticut Water Resources Commission conducted a water resources investigation of this basin from July 1966 to November 1968. The interpretive results of this study are published separately in Connecticut Water Resources Bulletin No. 21. Streamflow and water-quality data and measurements of water levels In observation wells collected during the investigative period have been published in the 1967, 1968 and 1969 volumes of the annual series of U.S. Geological Survey reports entitled "Water Resources Data for Connecticut". The remaining significant information, consisting of records of 284 wells and 5 springs, logs of 322 wells and test holes, mechanical analyses of 58 sediment samples of stratified drift and records of 3 pumping tests is contained in this report. The locations of all sites at which hydrogeologic data were collected are shown on plate A (in pocket at back of report). The Information contained on the following pages together with data previously published~ document the companion interpretive report and should facilitate the planned development of water resources at specific localities.
