Abstract

An initial system of 223 observation wells is proposed for monitoring ground-water levels in North Carolina. These wells are suggested to replace and upgrade nearly 650 observation wells currently measured in separate State and Federal programs, and are arranged in four groups or networks each having specific objectives. These groups are (1) a climatic-effects network, (2) a terrane-effects network, (3) a local-effects network, and (4) an areal-effects network. Recommendations are also made regarding additional observation-well coverage in some areas of the State. Records-review and network-review procedures constituted the largest amount of effort in this study and required a considerable amount of organization to keep track of well records and water-level data. These procedures are outlined in this report as a guide for those who are contemplating an observation-well program review. The report also contains suggested organizational contents of a data file, including procedures for records processing, and various forms used to document the review and data-collection efforts.
