Abstract

The ground-water study of the Lower Cretaceous formations in south-central Texas, commonly referred to as the Hill Country, was conducted during the period from December 1974 to October 1978. The primary purpose of the study was to describe the hydrologic characteristics of the Trinity Group, which includes the Glen Rose Formation and the Hensell Sand, Bexar Shale, Cow Creek Limestone, Hammett Shale, Sligo Limestone, and Hosston Sand Members of the Travis Peak Formation. Principal objectives of the investigation included: (a) collection and evaluation of previously compiled geologic and hydrologic data; (b) determination of the quantity and quality of the available ground waters on a regional basis; (c) determination of the hydrological characteristics of the various formations; (d) determination of hydrologic formations; (e) determination of recharge and discharge of the initiation of a continuing monitoring program. connections between the annual amount of aquifers; and (f) the ground-water quality For the purpose of this report, hydrologic: data were gathered primarily from high-capacity wells which include public supply, industrial, and irrigation wells. Also an attempt was made to inventory all perennial springs.
