Abstract

Data are presented that result from an intensive geohydrologic study for water-supply planning in a 12-square-mile area in northeastern Wichita County, Kansas. These data include records of wells, test drilling, chemical analyses, ground-water levels, rainfall, soil moisture, well yield, solar radiation, crop yield , and crop acreage. Data indicate that water levels in the unconsolidated aquifer are declining at an average annual rate of about 1 to 2 feet per year (1950-78). This decline is the aquifer 's response to pumping by irrigation wells for watering corn, wheat, grain sorghum, and other crops. (Kosco-USGS)
