Abstract

Pumpage data from about 2,100 wells used for public and nonpublic water-supply in Nassau County from 1920-77 have been collected and are available for public inspection at the U.S. Geological Survey office in Syosset, Nassau County. Except for wells in use before 1920, these data constitute the entire record available through 1977. The data are divided into two categories--pumpage from wells used for public supply, and pumpage from wells used mainly for industrial and commercial uses, designated as nonpublic water supply. Pumpage is tabulated by well or well field and is given by month or year with an annual total. The report serves as an introduction and user 's manual to the data, which are available for inspection but are not included in the report because they fill several hundred pages. The report describes the method of reporting pumpage on Long Island and how pumpage values were derived from the records. It also includes well-completion data and two maps showing the location of all wells. (USGS)
