Abstract

Several inquiries about the availability of ground water and its quality for industrial use in the vicinity of Little Rock, Ark. have led to the assembling of the following information from the files of the United States Geological Survey in Little Rock and Fayetteville.


There are large undeveloped reserves of ground water in the vicinity of Little Rock that can be made available through large-capacity wells. However, the water probably would require treatment for most industrial uses. Ground water is used in Little Rock and vicinity at an estimated rate of about 10 million gallons per day. The most productive water-bearing material consists of alluvial deposits along the Arkansas River and in a large area extending northeast, east, and southeast of the city. Records of 41 selected wells and chemical analyses of water from 28 wells tapping these deposits are given below. The areas in which the productive deposits occur and the location of the wells are shown on the map.
