An observation-well network concept as applied to North Carolina

Water-Resources Investigations Report 81-13



A statewide observation-well program is proposed for North Carolina based on four networks of observation wells with different but clearly-defined objectives. These are referred to as the (1) climatic-effects network, (2) terrane-effects network, (3) local-effects network, and (4) areal-effects network.

The characteristics of each network are related to natural and manmade stresses in aquifers, and the areas and hydrogeologic units in North Carolina where these networks are needed are identified.

Formats for collection, processing, and publication of data from these networks are suggested.
