Abstract

The U.S. Geological Survey began a nationwide program in 1978, termed Regional Aquifer-System Analysis (RASA), to study a number of the major aquifer systems that provide a significant part of the country 's water supply. One of the aquifer systems chosen for study was the thick and extensive sequence of sands of Cretaceous and early Tertiary age that underlies the Coastal Plain of the southeastern United States. This system, which extends from Mississippi eastward to South Carolina, is called the Southeastern Coastal Plain aquifer system. It can be divided geohydrologically into several separate aquifers. The map presented, one of a series that portray the potentiometric surface, groundwater withdrawals, and recharge areas for aquifers in Alabama that are included in the regional system, deals with the Lisbon aquifer.
