Ground-water investigations were continued under the Water Commission- U.S. Geological Survey Cooperative Program at four project area in Connecticut during the year ended June 30, 1954. Substantial progress was made in the collection of basic water information in the lower Farmington River basin. Both surface and subsurface geological area were assembled for use by prospective well owners. The preparation of a report on the geology and ground-water resources of the agricultural area of north-central Connecticut was continued during the year. As a continuation of investigations on the ground-water resources of the industrial areas of New Haven and Waterbury, observations of water level and samples of water were taken bi-monthly from 5 well at 5 industrial plants in Waterbury and anaysed for sulfate concentration in order to measure the degree of infiltration of acid-contaminated water to the water-bearing formations.
