Review of the 1986 South Carolina Low Country Floridan Aquifer Water Level Monitoring Network

Michael S. Crouch


The water levels in wells deriving water solely from the Floridan aquifer in Beaufort, Jasper, Colleton, and Hampton Counties were measured during March 10-15 and July 28–August 5, 1986 by South Carolina Water Resources Commission (SCWRC) personnel. This was done as part of the annual monitoring operation. This report:

  1. outlines the extent and distribution of the monitoring network;
  2. presents data obtained during the water level runs;
  3. briefly describe the flow regime;
  4. describes the field efforts during 1986.
Interpretation is kept to a minimum because presentation of data is the objective of this report.

The report contains two appendices. Appendix A is a list of all wells on monitoring network, along with their respective water levels. Appendix B is a tabulation of specifications and information pertaining to each well. Both appendices are indexed in order of SCWRC well number.
