Harrison County Ground-Water Monitoring
Project Chief: Jeannie Barlow
The USGS collects water-quality samples from about 25 wells (of an approximately 100-well network), annually in order to determine and evaluate the ground-water resources of Harrison County, Mississippi. Since 1997, water samples have been collected at selected wells screened in the Citronelle, Graham Ferry, Pascagoula, Hattiesburg, and Catahoula Sandstone aquifers and are analyzed for field properties (temperature, pH, specific conductivity, and color), total dissolved solids, chloride, iron, and manganese. Water levels are also measured at the wells to determine long-term water-level trends in the aquifers. The resulting information forms the foundation for many of the area's water-resources management and planning activities and allows for the early detection of possible problems for example, saltwater intrusion and contamination.
