Summary

Problem - The entire Tug Hill glacial aquifer is a 47-mile-long, crescent-shaped mixture of glacial deposits of predominantly sand and gravel on the western side of the Tug Hill Plateau in Jefferson, Oswego, and Oneida Counties in north central New York. The Tug Hill aquifer can be divided into three parts (northern, central, and southern) based on geohydrological setting, depositional history, and type of glacial deposits (fig. 1). In this study, the name “Tug Hill glacial aquifer” refers only to the 29-mi-long northern and central parts of the Tug Hill aquifer. (The southern part was not included in this investigation.) For this study, the division between the northern and central parts of the aquifer was placed about 0.5 miles (mi) [...]

Purpose

Provide local government, water managers, businesses, and homeowners with surface- and groundwater information needed to ensure that there will be (1) a safe drinking-water supply, (2) water available for economic development, and (3) healthy aquatic environments in the future. The study will additionally build upon the USGS data collection efforts in the state and on the interpretation of the Nation’s water availability.

typeShort Project Description
valueImprove the understanding of the hydrogeology of the Tug Hill glacial aquifer with an overall reassessment of the aquifers’ boundaries, water quality, and geologic framework and a more-detailed investigation of specific areas in the northern, central, and southern reaches of the aquifer including using numerical groundwater-flow models to help determine areas of recharge and travel times from these areas to critical locations in the aquifer
