A brief though concise statement of the history of ground‐water studies on Long Island, beginning with the early water‐level observations in Brooklyn by STODDARD in 1854, was given by THOMPSON [see 7 of “References” at end of paper]. These and other early data were considered later by LEGGETTE . He evaluated them by means of a graph of the cumulative departure of precipitation. More recent studies by LEGGETTE  and by the writer have lead to the procedure outlined in Part I of this paper , which was founded upon an empirical approach suggested by LEGGETTE and was later justified by analysis based on the theory of BOUSSINESQ .
