Abstract

This report shows the altitudes of water levels in the Chicot and Evangeline aquifers in the Houston metropolitan area, Texas. Of the 425 wells measured, 307 were used to construct the maps of potentiometric surface.

The Chicot and Evangeline aquifers are composed of several sand layers, each with a separate potentiometric surface. These maps, however, show a single potentiometric surface which represents the collective water levels for the sand layers comprising each aquifer. Maps showing the altitudes of water levels have been published in many reports on ground-water development in the Houston area, the most recent of which (Gabrysch and others, 1988) presented maps of the altitudes of potentiometric surfaces for 1988.
