Abstract

Ground-water level measurements from 30 wells in the Brightseat-upper Potomac aquifer in the Coastal Plain Physiographic Province of Virginia in 1993 were used to prepare a map of the potentiometric surface of the aquifer. The map shows the potentiometric surface of the Brightseat-upper Potomac aquifer indicating a regional trend toward the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean. The potentiometric-surface data indicate that cones of depression are apparent around West Point and in southeastern Isle of Wight County near Franklin, Virginia. The highest ground-water-level measurement was 4 feet above sea level in northern Accomack County, and the lowest ground-water-level measure- ment was 117 feet below sea level in Franklin, Virginia.
