Abstract

This report, prepared by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the Arkansas Soil and Water Conservation Commission, the U.S. Soil Conservation Service, and local Conservation Districts, contains groundwater level measurements of 512 wells tapping the Mississippi River Valley alluvial aquifer of eastern Arkansas. The measurements were made by district Soil Conservation Service personnel during 1986. The purpose of this report is to provide these data to other State and Federal agencies as well as to private landowners. The shallowest pre-pumping water levels occurred in Clay, Independence, Mississippi, and Randolph Counties where the average depth to water was 15 feet or less. The deepest water levels occurred in interstream areas where groundwater withdrawals were the greatest. Water levels of 100 feet or greater below land surface were measured in Arkansas, Cross, Lonoke, Poinsett, and Prairie Counties. Water level measurements made during the post-pumping (recovery) season averaged about 3 feet less than those made during the pre-pumping season. (USGS)
