Abstract

Aquifer and well hydraulic characteristics were determined from more than 100 multiple-well and single-well aquifer tests in the Coastal Plain of South Carolina and tabulated by county. Multiple-well aquifer tests were analyzed by the This method for nonleaky aquifers and the Hantush-Jacob method for leaky aquifers. Single-well tests were analyzed by straight line solution techniques for drawdown and recovery tests. Specific-capacity data are presented for many areas where aquifer-test information is sparse. The characteristics determined are based largely on well performance tests conducted by well drillers and consulting engineers. Although use of this information has many limitations, it has value in establishing transmissivity and storage coefficient values for the Coastal Plain aquifers. (Peters-PTT)
