Abstract

Water levels were measured in about 500 wells in the Mississippi River valley alluvial aquifer in northwestern Mississippi during April 1983. Ground-water levels have declined in some areas in recent years as a result of heavy irrigation pumpage from this aquifer. Near the areas of principal recharge, along the major rivers, and near the Bluff Hills, ground-water levels appear to be relatively unaffected by the large aquifer drafts; whereas away from the areas of recharge, in the interior of the basin, ground-water levels have shown a long-term decline.
