Abstract

Water resources of Homer-Preble Valley, 1 to 2 miles wide and 9 miles long, in central New York, were appraised because the area is expected to undergo considerable residential development in the near future. The main source of water supply to the residents of the area is the glacial-outwash aquifer. Data indicate that additional pumpage of 5 million to 10 million gallons per day from the aquifer would not seriously reduce the quantity and quality of the water supply. Water-quality analyses indicate that ground water and surface water in the valley are suitable for most uses and generally meet State standards for source waters for drinking. (Woodard-USGS)
