Abstract

This report presents a map showing the change in the potentiometric surface of the Lower Patapsco aquifer in the Lower Patapsco Formation of Cretaceous age in Southern Maryland for September 1990 and September 2001. The map, based on water level measurements in 49 wells, shows that the change of the potentiometric surface during the 11- year period ranged from a rise of 11 feet at Indian Head and 6 feet near the outcrop area in Glen Burnie, to declines of 37 feet at Arnold, 52 feet at Waldorf, and 31 feet at Morgantown.
