Abstract

The United States Geological Survey in cooperation with the Massachusetts Department of Public Works in 1938 began an investigation of the ground-water conditions in Massachusetts. This work is part of a larger cooperative program that includes surface-water investigations, geologic studies, and topographic mapping. The purpose of the ground-water studies is to obtain detailed information concerning the occurrence and availability of ground water throughout the State. The information is used by the Highway Division of the Department of Public Works in connection with design, construction, and maintenance of highways. These studies also provided a basis for the more effective utilization of the ground-water resources of the State. They indicate where additional developments can be made safely or where present use may be excessive. Reports covering the ground-water studies are listed in the appendix.
