This report, which was prepared in cooperation with the City of Houston and the Galveston Coastal Subsidence District, present data on water-level changes during 1977-85 and 1984-85 in the Chicot and Evangeline aquifers (figs. 1-4) and data on measured compaction 1973-85 (fig. 5).
Water levels in about 500 wells were used to construct the maps showing water-level changes. Compation data were obtained from 12 wells equipped with compaction monitors (fig. 6).
