Water-level records from 146 short-term (1 year) observation wells and 13 long-term (16-28 years) observation wells were used to estimate the probable high ground-water level that could occur at any site on Cape Cod. The estimation was based on correlation of a single water-level measurement from a test site with water-level records of the nine index wells. Maps showing areas of Cape Cod represented by the nine index wells and showing five ranges of water-level fluctuation are used in conjunction with tables of water-level adjustments to make the estimates.
