Hydrogeology of Two Areas of the Tug Hill Glacial-drift Aquifer, Oswego County, New York

Summary

Problem - Several supply wells in Oswego County were evaluated by the USGS in 1999 by using stable oxygen and hydrogen isotopes and chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) age dating techniques. For two municipal well sites (the Villages of Sandy Creek and Lacona, and the Village of Pulaski) that tap a shallow, unconfined aquifer (typically 20-50 ft thick) there were significant discrepancies between ground-water recharge ages determined by chemical data and those determined by ground-water-flow models developed by independent studies. The significant discrepancies between the times of travel of ground water as determined by numerical ground-water-flow modeling and geochemical dating techniques in Oswego County need to be understood and a coherent [...]

Purpose

The study will provide valuable data to local, state, and federal agencies that are responsible for developing source water delineations and protection strategies for public water supplies.

typeShort Project Description
valueThe significant discrepancies between the times of travel of ground water as determined by numerical ground-water-flow modeling and geochemical dating techniques in Oswego County need to be understood and a coherent conceptual model of the ground-water flow system developed before water managers and government agencies can implement effective ground-water protection strategies. This study will provide valuable data to local, state, and federal agencies that are responsible for developing source water delineations and protection strategies for public water supplies.
