Abstract

This report describes the water-resources projects and activities of the Geological Survey in Texas for the 1981 fiscal year (October 1, 1980, to September 30, 1981). A continuing series of measurements and quantitative analyses are made of streamflow, reservoir contents, and estuarine flow. In addition, data are collected on the chemical quality of water and sediment in streams and reservoirs, water levels in wells, and land-surface subsidence. By the end of the 1981 fiscal year, the following installations will be in operation: Approximately 677 digital recorders at stream-gaging, tide-level, and rainfall stations; 15 conductivity (digital) recorders; 5 instruments for continuously monitoring and recording the water-quality characteristics of conductivity, water temperature, dissolved oxygen, and pH; and 6 continuous recorders for water temperature. Ground-water data are collected at more than 1,300 observation wells. Water levels are measured continuously in 29 wells and periodically in 1,000 wells; chemical-quality data are collected in 300 wells; and subsidence data are collected in 13 wells. (USGS)
