Georgia's Ground Water Resources
Includes details on what groundwater is, along with information on the cycle it
goes through and its movement.

  • However, it is inevitable that future growth will continue to place increasing demands on this precious resource

  • The upper surface of the saturated zone in such an aquifer is referred to as the water table

  • These aquifers occur in almost all areas of the state and are commonly called water table aquifers or surficial aquifers

  • In water table aquifers, water may move readily from surface sources such as streams and rivers to ground water and vice-versa

  • Ground water, particularly from the water table aquifers, typically discharges into streams, lakes and wetlands

  • Where the water table intercepts the ground surface, water can discharge, forming a spring

  • Water table aquifers are present in each of the physio-graphic provinces

  • Shallow wells tapping the water table aquifer are especially prevalent in rural areas where they are often used for domestic supply and livestock watering

  • Consequently, well yields tend to be unpredictable

  • However, from 1980 to 1989, chloride concentrations have remained relatively stable

  • Georgia's ground water is of good quality in most areas and is suitable for most uses

    on dams and water chemistry.

  • This heap of sediments and rock is now very stable, after all this time

  • Any place the sand dips lower than the 'water table' (which is the top of the underground water), water seeps out into the dip

  • So the water table retreats further below the surface

  • I'd also better stress something that isn't too obvious: the water table doesn't have to be flat

  • If rain falls on a hill, then the water table will resemble the shape of the hill

  • But what happens if you interfere with Nature by pumping water out of the wet sand? First, the water table may drop, whether it's winter or summer

  • The Water Corporation keeps an eye on the water table in the metro area: they monitor it with hundreds of bores

  • Heavy pumping for irrigation or other large water uses may lower the water table in adjacent areas

  • Water quality is considered below average because of hardness, objectionable concentrations of sulfate, and dissolved solids concentrations greater than 500 ppm (see notes in Table 1)

  • The results from some of the chemical tests performed on these Williams County wells are given in Table 1

  • These chemical constituents do not pose a risk to human health (see notes in Table 1)

  • The information in Table 1 can be used as a guide to what one might expect from an existing or new well developed in similar geologic material in the county

  • In most cases, the data provided in Table 1 was taken from a water sample obtained just after the well was put into operation

  • Also, wells that are hydraulically connected to a stream may show fluctuations in the water-table level as the stream level changes

  • Well data and the historic water levels are provided in Table 1

  • Table 1

  • The results from some of the chemical tests performed on these Fairfield County wells are given in Table 2

  • These chemical constituents do not pose a risk to human health (see notes in Table 2)

  • In an unconfined aquifer, the water table is not separated from the surface of the ground by a layer that is impermeable to water

    The Soils of Pennsylvania
    Maps and description.

  • The soils developed in the beach sands are mostly sandy and gravelly and have rapid internal drainage, although some have a shallow water table where the silts and clays underlie the beach deposits

  • This region has a mild climate due to the proximity of Lake Erie, making it suitable for the cultivation of rather unique crops such as grapes

  • The poor drainage of many soils in this region is characterized by gleying (gray color of reduced iron) and mottling (spots of color) caused by a perched seasonal high water table and impeded percolation

  • Due to their low agricultural productivity, most soils of the Allegheny Plateau are under forest vegetation, but there are some notable exceptions, such as potato and pasture production

  • Table 1.1-1 lists major soils of Pennsylvania, along with some of their properties and expected yield potentials

  • Harrell argues that capillary action (suction) from the water table and from nearby Nile flooding, and occasional rainfall, wetted the sand regularly

  • But he attributes the fissuring of the Sphinx and its walls primarily to subsurface water movements (the rising and falling of water tables) underground over millions of years

  • The information reported here in 'Grow Your Own Vegetables Without Soil' should be beneficial to the gardening enthusiast who wishes to try hydro- ponics as a hobby

  • The commercial production of vegetables utilizing hydroponic techniques is complicated and should be employed by only the most competent grower

  • With this system, the main considerations are: provision of a suitable container, suspension of the plants above the water, provision of a suitable nutrient solution, and proper aeration of the water solution

  • Aerators normally used to keep fish alive in bait wells or aquariums are suitable for small units

  • NUTRIENT FLOW TECHNIQUE (NFT) Many commercial systems today utilize a series of plastic tubing through which a nutrient solution is circulated around the roots of vegetables inserted into the tube

  • Sawdust and wood shavings are also acceptable

  • Commercial production of vegetables using soilless culture is a capital-intensive, complicated, and high management- intensive enterprise
