Summary

This dataset documents the depth to groundwater measured in wells screened in the Chicot, Evangeline, and Jasper aquifers in the Houston‐Galveston region, Texas for 2019. The U.S. Geological Survey prepared this dataset in cooperation with the Harris‐Galveston Subsidence District, City of Houston, Fort Bend Subsidence District, Lone Star Groundwater Conservation District, and Brazoria County Groundwater Conservation District. This dataset was created to provide resource managers, public officials, researchers, and the general public with ready access to information regarding depths to groundwater in the region. All of the data in this dataset were collected from December 2018 through March 2019 and are stored in the National Water [...]

Purpose

This 2019 dataset is part of an annual assessment of the depth to groundwater in Harris, Galveston, Fort Bend, Montgomery, Brazoria, Chambers, Grimes, Liberty, San Jacinto, Walker, and Waller Counties, Texas. Most of the land-surface subsidence in the Houston-Galveston region, Texas, occurs as a direct result of groundwater withdrawals for municipal supply, commercial and industrial use, and irrigation that depressures and dewaters the Chicot, Evangeline, and Jasper aquifers in different parts of the Houston-Galveston region, thereby causing compaction of the aquifer sediments (Gabrysch, 1979).
