Abstract

Data are presented in tables for 238 wells representing nine aquifers underlying the New Jersey Coastal Plain. Approximately two-thirds of these wells are screened in the unconfined Kirkwood-Cohansey aquifer system, the principal source of groundwater in the study area. In addition, seven local streams were sampled in their headwaters under base flow conditions. Field measurements include water temperature, specific conductance, pH, and alkalinity; laboratory determinations include common inorganic ions, nutrients, trace metals, dissolved organic carbon, and volatile organic compounds. Other tables include lithology and hydrologic characteristics of geologic units, well-construction data, and median and extreme values of constituents in water of the Kirkwood-Cohansey aquifer system. A plate shows all sampling sites and presents three hydrogeologic sections delineating subsurface relationships. (USGS)
