Abstract

This report, which was prepared in cooperation with the cities of Houston and Galveston, the Harris Galveston Coastal Subsidence Distract, and the Texas Department of Water Resources, presents data on water-level changes during 1977-80 and 1979-80 in the Chicot and Evangelina aquifers (figs. 1-4).  During these periods, ground water pumping decreased in Galveston County and southern Harris County and increased in northern and western Harris County (Gabrysch, 1979).

Water levels in about 550 wells were used to construct the maps showing water level changes.
