Abstract

Locks and dams under construction on the Red River in Louisiana will probably affect water levels and water quality in the Red River alluvial aquifer. Water levels measured in the Red River alluvial aquifer from January 1981 to December 1985 document preconstruction water level fluctuations in wells in the aquifer. Chemical analyses of samples collected from January 1978 to December 1985 from wells in the Red River alluvial aquifer document the quality of water in the aquifer. In the vicinity of Lock and Dam 1, the water level measurements and water quality samples after December 1983 document postconstruction. Water levels were measured for 404 wells, and water quality samples were collected from 178 wells in the aquifer. (USGS)
