Monitoring of Groundwater and Surface-Water Resources in the City of Lawrenceville Area
Project Chief: John Clarke
Cooperator: City of Lawrenceville, Georgia
Year started: 2002
Progress and Significant Results, 2006—2007
- Maintained two continuous ground-water-level recorders in the upper Alcovy River Basin, two in the Redland–Pew Creek River Basin, and one in the upper Apalachee River Basin.
- Obtained intermittent water-level measurements at 21 monitoring wells.
- Installed continuous-recording streamgage and water- quality monitoring station for the Shoal Creek Basin.
- Maintained continuous-recording streamgages at the outflow of the upper Alcovy River Basin, the upper Apalachee River Basin, the Redland–Pew Creek Basin, and the Shoal Creek Basin to establish information on base flow, runoff, and other hydrologic properties, including selected water-quality characteristics.
- Maintained and obtained streamflow readings at four additional staff-gage monitoring sites.
- Made low-flow (seepage) measurements during fall 2006 (22) and 2007 (8) low-flow period to quantify the ground-water contribution to streamflow in areas being monitored.
- Completed packer testing of well 14FF55 to investigate elevated uranium levels in water samples collected from specific intervals within the well.
- Updated the project Web site.
