Abstract

Groundwater level measurements were made in 694 wells in Arkansas in the spring of 1988. These data are listed in tables by aquifer; then by county. For each well, the altitude of the land surface, the date measured, the depth to the water surface, and the altitude of the water surface are reported. Also reported are the net changes in water levels between 1987 and 1988 and between 1983 and 1988. This report also contains maps showing the average water level change, by county, between the years 1983 and 1988 for the aquifers in the Quaternary deposits and the Sparta and Memphis Sands. Hydrographs are included for selected wells completed in the Quaternary deposits and the Sparta and Memphis Sands. The aquifers in in the Quaternary deposits and the Sparta and Memphis Sands are important aquifers in eastern and southern Arkansas for agricultural, municipal, and industrial use. Water level data contained in this report showed an average decline of 1.12 ft in the aquifer in the Quaternary deposits, for the 24 most heavily irrigated counties of eastern Arkansas, and an average decline of 3.82 ft in the aquifer in the Sparta and Memphis Sands between the years 1983 and 1988.
