Abstract

A generalized potentiometric surface map prepared as part of the southeastern United States, Regional Sand Aquifer-System Analysis defines the altitude of water levels under conditions prior to development for aquifer unit A3, the middle group of aquifers in the sand aquifer system. Aquifer unit A3, consisting of Upper Cretaceous and Tertiary sands, is under artesian conditions except locally in the recharge areas. The regional flow direction is to the rivers in the area where the unit outcrops, west toward the Mississippi River in Mississippi, and southward to the Gulf of Mexico in Alabama and West Georgia. In eastern Georgia, the flow is southeast toward the Atlantic Ocean , and in South Carolina, the direction of flow is southeast toward the Pee Dee River. (USGS)
