Abstract

Profiles were prepared by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the Harris-Galveston Counties Coastal Subsidence District and the Texas Department of Water Resources to show the changes in the altitudes of the potentiometric surfaces and, consequently, the changes in effective stress on the framework of the aquifers as a result of changes in the distribution and amount of ground-water pumping. In general, and in most areas, the profiles show for the dates indicated that water levels have increased and that the effective stress has decreased. (Woodard-USGS)
