Bedrock Regional Aquifer Systematics Study

Georgia

Greater Atlanta ground water studies.  The rapidly-developing Atlanta suburbs are increasingly relying on ground water for human consumption.  William Burton (BRASS) is working with Lester Williams (USGS-WRD Georgia District) and Randy Kath (University of West Georgia) to investigate the influence of bedrock geology on ground water availability.  This multi-year study includes detailed bedrock mapping, beginning in the Lawrenceville area northeast of Atlanta, and Rockdale County, southeast of the city.
