Summary

The Mississippi River Alluvial Aquifer is a major source of water supply for irrigation in much of eastern Arkansas. Hydrologic maps of the potentiometric surface, water-level changes and depths to water in the aquifer, based on Spring 1983 measurements, are presented. The Mississippi River Alluvial Aquifer is comprised of Quaternary alluvial flood-plain and terrace deposits. The aquifer generally is partially-confined. Recharge to the aquifer is principally through precipitation and surface-water bodies. The potentiometric surface map indicates two cones of depression occurring in the aquifer beneath Arkansas, Poinsett, and Cross Counties as a result of heavy pumpage within these areas. A comparison of water-level data from 1982 and [...]
