This potentiometric map of the Ripley aquifer in northeastern Mississippi is the fifth in a series of maps, prepared by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the Mississippi Department of Natural Resources, Bureau of Land and Water Resources, delineating the potentiometric surfaces of the major aquifers in Mississippi. In the outcrop area of the Ripley aquifer the potentiometric surface is strongly affected by recharge from precipitation, by topography, and by drainage of the aquifer by streams. The potentiometric surface slopes generally to the west away from the area of outcrop and is mildly affected by pumpage from wells and by discharge of flowing wells in the valleys. Historically, water levels in or near the outcrop have shown little or no long-term changes. (USGS)
