Summary

This data set consists of digital polygons of a constant recharge value for the alluvial and terrace deposits along the Beaver-North Canadian River from the panhandle to Canton Lake in northwestern Oklahoma. Ground water in 830 square miles of the Quaternary-age alluvial and terrace aquifer is an important source of water for irrigation, industrial, municipal, stock, and domestic supplies. The aquifer consists of poorly sorted, fine to coarse, unconsolidated quartz sand with minor amounts of clay, silt, and basal gravel. The hydraulically connected alluvial and terrace deposits unconformably overlie the Tertiary-age Ogallala Formation and Permian-age formations. A recharge rate of 1 inch per year was estimated in the ground-water modeling [...]

Purpose

This data set was created for a project to develop data sets to support ground-water vulnerability analysis. The objective was to create and document a digital geospatial data set from a published report or map, or existing digital geospatial data sets that could be used in ground-water vulnerability analysis.
