Water-level measurements in 418 wells were used to develop a potentiometric-surface map of the carbonate-rock aquifer and a water-table map of the basin-fill aquifer in the Basin and Range carbonate-rock aquifer system (BARCAS) study area. The BARCAS study area encompasses about 13,500 square miles and includes most of White Pine County, Nevada, and smaller areas of adjacent counties in Nevada and Utah. Current and historical data from the U.S. Geological Survey National Water Information System, previous publications, and field reconnaissance were used to define water-level surfaces.
