Groundwater Resources, LLC is a geologic and hydrogeologic consulting firm established in For over 10 years, Groundwater Southeastern Pennsylvania book has provided professional services to a variety of clients in the municipal, industrial, and commercial sectors. We service clients in several regions, including the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, and West Virginia.

In southeastern Pennsylvania, groundwater is nearly always accessed with wells less than 1, feet deep, and usually by wells that are less than feet. Most groundwater flow is in shallow (less than feet) flow systems.

The depth to the groundwater table in Pennsylvania is typically less than feet. The Gettysburg and Hammer Creek Formations, which are the focus of this groundwater report, underlie parts of Adams, York, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Berks, and Chester Counties in the Gettysburg-Newark Lowland section of the Piedmont physiographic province.

Coarse sandstones and conglomerates which outcrop in the narrow neck of the Newark-Gettysburg basin in PA are here named the Hammer Creek Formation of the Newark Group to avoid extending either the Gettysburg Formation from the west or the Brunswick Formation from the east to include rocks typical of neither unit.

A few tests were conducted by the U. Geological Survey. Most of the tests were performed on wells in the Gettysburg Formation (Figure 6), because it underlies the largest portion of the county and has the greatest potential for groundwater development.

These water resources are vulnerable to contamination by pollutants from activities in and outside park boundaries. This report describes the hydrogeology and ground-water.

The ground-water system is generally confined or semi-confined, even at shallow depths. Depth to water can range from flowing at land surface to more than 71 feet below land surface.

Special acknowledgment is due Mr. William L. Klein, Assistant Executive Director and Randy Size: 2MB. The Pipe Creek Line was named after a stream called Big Pipe Creek which flows generally east to west across the north central portion of Carroll County Maryland.

Just east of Taneytown (pronounced Tawnytown) the creek turns southward then again westward forming a wide arc approximately 3 miles south of Taneytown. Crystalline rock aquifers are located in most of southeastern Pennsylvania.

The rock has very small fractures so storage capacity and yield are relatively low. Water is generally soft. Yields are commonly 5 to 25 gal/min. See Illustration 12 for a map of Pennsylvania aquifers.
