Abstract

Preliminary data are presented for test wells in Kansas that were completed in Cambrian and Ordovician rocks of the Arbuckle Group in late 1979 and early 1980. Included in the report are hole history, electrical logs, geology (sample descriptions and cores), hydrologic testing, and geochemistry. These wells were drilled to determine the regional hydrology of the Arbuckle Group and to investigate the hydraulic characteristics of the formation at site-specific areas. The test wells were drilled in Miami, Douglas, Saline, and Labette Counties, Kansas. Depths of the wells ranged from 1,816 feet in Labette County to 3,665 feet in Saline County. Results of core analyses from rocks in the Arbuckle Group are presented for vertical and horizontal permeability to air, porosity, fluid saturation, acoustic velocity, resistivity indices, and formation factor. Formation data from drill-stem tests are presented for use in calculating transmissivity, hydraulic conductivity, and hydraulic head. Analyses of water samples from the test wells are presented to indicate water quality in the aquifers. (USGS)
