Summary

A revised regional groundwater-flow model using a modified grid in conjunction with USGS MODFLOW-2000 was developed to the predict the effects of Lower Floridan aquifer (LFA) groundwater pumpage on the Upper Floridan aquifer (UFA) in the Barbour Pointe community, Chatham County, Georgia. The model was modified using hydrogeologic information obtained from field investigations at Barbour Pointe, Berwick Plantation near Berwick, Pooler, Hunter Army Airfield, Rincon, and Fort Stewart.

Purpose

This modified groundwater model grid was created to predict the effect of Lower Floridan aquifer groundwater pumpage on the Upper Floridan aquifer flow near Barbour Pointe community in urban Chatham County, Georgia. The modified version of a regional groundwater-flow model and associated model grid of coastal Georgia encompasses 42,155 square miles in Georgia and adjacent areas in South Carolina and Florida (Payne and others, 2005).
