Hydrologic Investigations. The first step in any hydrologic investigation is characterization of the resource. Initially, upper, lower, and lateral boundaries of the groundwater basin are determined, and then aquifer properties—such as saturated thickness, hydraulic conductivity (ft/day), transmissivity (ft²/day), specific yield, and storage coefficient—are determined to understand .

Title Ground-water quality of the central Oklahoma (Garber-Wellington) Aquifer Conference: proceedings, Febru [microform] / edited by Scott Christenson and Lyn Carpenter. OKLAHOMA Ground-Water Quality In Oklahoma, ground water is the major source of water for irrigation, the largest single use of water. The major population centers (fig. 1) rely primarily on surface water for public supply, but many of the smaller towns and rural water systems depend on ground water. Ground water accounts for about 28 percent of theAuthor: W.F. Horak, J.D.

[David L Parkhurst; Scott C Christenson; George N Breit]. Year Published: Geochemical investigation of the Arbuckle-Simpson Aquifer, South-Central Oklahoma, A geochemical reconnaissance investigation of the Arbuckle-Simpson aquifer in south-central Oklahoma was initiated in to characterize the ground-water quality at an aquifer scale, to describe the chemical evolution of ground water as it flows from recharge . In Central Oklahoma, the major bedrock aquifer is the Garber-Wellington aquifer, a subset of the larger Central Oklahoma Aquifer system. The aquifer is named after the two rock formations that the water flows through: the Garber Sandstone and the Wellington Formation. Introduction to the Aquifer. The world is a watery place. The Central Oklahoma (Garber-Wellington) aquifer underlies about 3, square miles of central Oklahoma. The study area for this investigation was the extent of the Central Oklahoma aquifer. Water from the Central Oklahoma aquifer is used for public, industrial, commercial, agricultural, and domestic supply. With the exception of Oklahoma City.
