USGS Measures Groundwater Levels in Southern Coastal Plain Area of Black Creek Aquifer

Record #:
In cooperation with the Lumber River Council of Governments, the United States Geological Survey assessed the effects of groundwater withdrawals on water levels in the southern Coastal Plain area of the Black Creek aquifer. Between September 1992 and December 1998, groundwater levels were monitored in twenty-one wells screened in Black Creek aquifer throughout Bladen, Hoke, Robeson, and Scotland counties. Results showed that water levels have changed little in most of this area, but have declined in some areas due to pumping.
