Abstract

Water levels were measured in about 500 wells in the Mississippi River valley alluvial aquifer in northwestern Mississippi during the period April 12-23, 1982. The water-level change from April 1981 to April 1982, showed a general decline, but the water-level change from September 1981 to April 1982 showed some recovery. Water levels in the Delta were higher along the Mississippi River and Bluff Hills. Historically, water levels decline and rise as the amount of precipitation decreases or increases. Recently, continuous heavy pumping for irrigation has caused general water-level declines in the alluvial aquifer. (USGS)
