Summary

This USGS data release contains (1) geologic-unit top-surface altitudes in boreholes and (2) aquifer-test time-series water-level drawdowns, recoveries, and supporting data from the Piney Point aquifer in Virginia from 2009 through 2015. Extents, compositions, configurations, and geologic relations of six geologic units that compose the Piney Point aquifer were determined from geologists’ logs of sediment core and cuttings, borehole geophysical logs, and drillers’ logs. The Piney Point aquifer is characterized to address information needs for water-resource management in the Virginia Coastal Plain. Information on the Piney Point aquifer can benefit water-resource management in siting production wells, predicting likely well yield, [...]

Purpose

The data sets were created (1) to delineate geologic units that compose the Piney Point aquifer, and (2) to determine hydraulic properties of the Piney Point aquifer. These data are being archived so that others can use the data.
