This map and text set describes the physical geology of an area that is undergoing rapid urban growth. The study area includes part of the regionally important Edwards aquifer and recharge zone. The set also provides general information relating geology to aspects of land use, urban planning, construction practices, and water-resource management. Research for the project was supported by the COGEOMAP Program and the STATEMAP component of the National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program administered by the U.S. Geological Survey.
