      Major Quaternary Aquifers Introduction Elements of the three-dimensional model were used to produce Major Quaternary Aquifers of Kane County, Illinois (Dey et al. e), replacing the Interim Major Quaternary Aquifers of Kane County, Illinois (Dey et al. b). On the new map, four aquifers are renamed to coincide with lo-cal geographic features.   Groundwater chemistry and tracer-based age data were used to assess contaminant movement and geochemical processes in the middle Claiborne aquifer (MCA) of the Mississippi embayment aquifer system. Water samples were collected from 30 drinking-water wells (mostly domestic and public supply) and analyzed for nutrients, major ions, pesticides, volatile organic compounds .

      The Quaternary aquifer of the Chadian basin covers an area of more than , km2 and includes all superficial aquifers of the lake region and occupies the center of the Chadian basin and separates from the underlying artesian Pliocene aquifer by theintermediary of a thick clay layer and also by the existence of a deep aquifer of meters. extensive regardless of the considerations of Quaternary aquifers as one or two hydrologic units. They are a part of the Mississippi River Valley Alluvial Aquifers which extend miles from north to south, and cover most of the west side of the embayment (approximat square miles).

government. The Mississippi Embayment aquifer system is composed of six regional aquifers covering aboutsquare miles in parts of Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee. The flow analysis presented in this report as part of the Gulf Coast Regional Aquifer-System Analysis study pertains to five aquifers in sediments of the Wilcox and Claiborne groups.

Geologic Background The Mississippi Embayment The Mississippi Embayment (ME) is a broad south-plunging trough filled with Upper Cretaceous and Paleogene marine to non- marine sediments overlain by a veneer of Pliocene and Quaternary fluvial sediments and Pleistocene (Gushing et al., ; Cox and Van Arsdale, ).

The Mississippi Embayment is a physiographic feature in the south-central United States, part of the Mississippi Alluvial is essentially a northward continuation of the fluvial sediments of the Mississippi River Delta to its confluence with the Ohio River at Cairo, current sedimentary area was formed in the Cretaceous and early Cenozoic by the filling with sediment of a.

Clark and Rheannon M. Hart. Scientific Investigations Report Summary of Aquifer Test Data for Arkansas, by Aaron L. Pugh. Before too long, aquifers across the world, like the Mississippi Embayment’s surface aquifer, will begin to show their limits. And if that happens without clear international policies in place.

The purpose of the Mississippi Embayment Aquifer Study (MERAS) is to assess the ground-water availability (status and trends) of the Mississippi embayment aquifer system. The study area covers portions of eight states including Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois.

The USGS recently constructed a computer model of groundwater in the Mississippi embayment. This model was used to simulate the rise or decline of water level in a deep aquifer.

The US Geological Survey (USGS) is conducting large scale multidisciplinary regional studies of groundwater availability for the s comprise individual assessments, like the Mississippi embayment, of regional groundwater flow systems that cover a variety of hydrogeologic terrains and are used to develop a comprehensive regional and national perspective.

Hydrogeologic units of the Mississippi embayment aquifer system include the Mississippi River Valley alluvial aquifer, Vicksburg-Jackson confining unit, the upper Claiborne aquifer, the middle Claiborne confining unit, the middle Claiborne aquifer, the lower Claiborne confining unit, the lower Claiborne aquifer, the middle Wilcox aquifer, the lower Wilcox aquifer, and the Midway confining unit.The Sparta-Memphis aquifer is the most widely used aquifer in the Mississippi Embayment for industrial and public supply.
