Borehole hydrogeologic-unit top-surface altitudes, aquifer hydraulic properties, and groundwater-sample chloride-concentration data from 1906 through 2016 for the Virginia Eastern Shore

Metadata Updated: October 28, 2023

A hydrogeologic framework was developed by USGS during 2016-19 to describe the groundwater system on the Virginia Eastern Shore. This USGS data release contains text files of (1) interpreted borehole hydrogeologic-unit top-surface altitudes, (2) summary values of previously documented estimates of aquifer hydraulic properties, and (3) groundwater-sample chloride concentrations and well summary statistics. In addition are shapefiles of altitude contours for 10 hydrogeologic-unit top surfaces, and for the groundwater 250 milligrams per liter chloride-concentration surface. This data release supports the following publication: McFarland, E.R., and Beach, T.A., 2019, Hydrogeologic framework of the Virginia Eastern Shore: U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report 2019-5093, 26 p., 13 pl.,
