Abstract

This report presents a map showing the change in the potentiometric surface of the Magothy aquifer in the Magothy Formation of Cretaceous age in Southern Maryland for September 1975 and September 2003. The map, based on water level measurements in 51 wells, shows that during the 28-year period, the potentiometric surface had no change at the outcrop area, which is in the northernmost part of the study area, but declined 71 feet at Waldorf. Waldorf is located near the southwesternmost part of the study area, and approaches the downdip boundary of the aquifer.
