    Aquifers: Ground Water Atlas of the United States. The Ground Water Atlas of the United States, USGS Hydrologic Atlas (Miller, ), describes the location, hydrologic characteristics, and geologic characteristics of the principal aquifers throughout the 50 States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin groundwater information summarized in the Atlas was collected over many years by. controlled to prevent degradation of groundwater quality. This research is a study of the relationship between groundwater quality and land use in Rhode Island State. Water quality data were collected from twenty-one public drinking water wells and land use data were interpreted from air photos.

    Projects. Big River Management Area Wells. Water demand in Rhode Island is increasing, and the Rhode Island Water Resources Board (RIWRB), which is responsible developing and protecting the State’s major water resources, is concerned that this increasing demand may exceed the current capacity. Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Rhode Island and Texas. The Reasonable Use Rule Limits a landowner’s use of water to those uses that have a reasonable relationship to the use of the overlying land. The rule is essentially the rule of absolute ownership with exceptions for wasteful and off-site use.

    From through , the U.S. Geological Survey investigated the ground-water system of western Long Island, New York, including Kings and Queens counties. This report describes the structure and operation of the western part of the Long Island ground-water system, and the hydrologic effects associated with human development from to the. The U.S. Geological Survey established the Regional Aquifer-System Analysis (RASA) program to evaluate major interconnected aquifers or groups of aquifers that share similar characteristics within a region. One of the objectives of the Northeastern Glacial RASA is to provide information on the occurrence and quality of ground water in glacial deposits in ten States: Maine, New Hampshire.

A Summary of Rhode Island. GROUNDWATER CLASSIFICATION and GROUNDWATER STANDARDS. September The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM) "Groundwater Quality Rules" classify all of the state's groundwater resources and establish groundwater quality standards for each class.

The fourFile Size: KB. The USGS annually monitors groundwater levels in thousands of wells in the United States.

Groundwater level data are collected and stored as either discrete field-water-level measurements or as continuous time-series data from automated recorders.

Data from some of the continuous record stations are relayed to USGS offices nationwide through telephone lines or by satellite transmissions. Rhode Island Groundwater Notes: The US Geological Survey has estimated that 27 million gallons per day of groundwater are used in the state for drinking water and other beneficial uses.

Groundwater supplies approximately 26% of the state's population with drinking water from public and private wells. COVID Resources.

In the late ’s, the Rhode Island Water Resources Board (WRB) determined that ground water was the only viable source of additional water for public supply in southern Rhode Island. The USGS, through its year cooperative program with the WRB, has studied ground water in several basins of Rhode Island, including each of five study areas.

All of these ponds are on Rhode Island’s list of impaired waters. “We’re not here because the public water suppliers are doing a bad job,” June Swallow, chief of the Rhode Island Department of Health’s Office of Drinking Water Quality, said at a March 31 meeting at the Newport Public Library.

The square-mile Upper Wood River study area is in the Pawcatuck River basin in southern Rhode Island. Stratified drift is the only principal geologic unit capable of producing yields greater than Mgal/d.

Transmissivity of the aquifer ranges from 7, to 49, sq ft/d. Water-table conditions prevail and the aquifer is in good hydraulic connection with perennial streams and ponds.

GROUND-WATER RESOURCES OF RHODE ISLAND By Elaine C. Todd Trench ABSTRACT This general-interest report appraises the occurrence, source, flow, and quality of ground water in Rhode Island. Ground water, withdrawn from all major geologic units in Rhode Island, provided drinking water for about one-fourth of the State's population in Cited by: 1.

Large-scale ground-water pumpage, sewering systems, and prolonged periods of below-normal precipitation have lowered ground-water levels and decreased stream-discharge in western and central Long Island.
