Abstract

The Atlantic Coastal Plain of Virginia includes 9,600 square miles--all or part of 40 counties east of the Fall Line. The undifferentiated Cretaceous sediments underlying this area are the most productive and extensive source of ground water, from which large withdrawals have been made over the past 40 years. In 1978, withdrawals exceeded 100 million gallons per day. To determine the effect of continued withdrawals, annual synoptic water levels for 1978 were used to prepare a map showing the approximate configuration of the potentiometric surface. (USGS)
