Borehole geologic-unit top-surface altitude and aquifer-component test data for the Piney Point aquifer, Virginia from 2009 through 2015

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

This USGS data release contains (1) geologic-unit top-surface altitudes in boreholes and (2) aquifer-test time-series water-level drawdowns, recoveries, and supporting data from the Piney Point aquifer in Virginia from 2009 through 2015. Extents, compositions, configurations, and geologic relations of six geologic units that compose the Piney Point aquifer were determined from geologists’ logs of sediment core and cuttings, borehole geophysical logs, and drillers’ logs. The Piney Point aquifer is characterized to address information needs for water-resource management in the Virginia Coastal Plain. Information on the Piney Point aquifer can benefit water-resource management in siting production wells, predicting likely well yield, and anticipating water-level response to withdrawals.
