Download Ground-water resources of the Piedmont-Blue Ridge provinces of North Carolina.

Ground water is one of our most important natural resources, as over half of the population of North Carolina depends on it for drinking water. More and more, we are learning that this resource is in danger.

This publication will provide an understanding of ground water and its sources. Understanding will make our task of preserving this valuable resource much easier. The Piedmont and Blue Ridge crystalline-rock aquifers, together with the other rock types in the Piedmont and Blue Ridge regions, rank second in the nation as a source of groundwater for private domestic supply, providing about million gallons per day for this use.

The aquifer underlies an area with a population of more than 25 million. The distribution of population gives rise to the need for widespread ground-water supplies.

Various engineering works and human actions change to some extent the hydrogeologic regime. Precipitation reaches almost cm a year in a small area of the southern Blue Ridge, but the average over the region is slightly more than cm.

The APRASA team investigated ground-water resources primarily in the unglaciated part of the Valley and Ridge, the Blue Ridge, the New England, and the Piedmont Physiographic Provinces (fig.

For the purposes of this report, the small area in the New England Physiographic Province that is within the study area in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. This ridge was formed by a suite of sedimentary rocks deposited on the shallow shelf of the North American continent hundreds of millions of years ago.

Numerous dikes of diabase, a fine-grained rock, that cut through the Piedmont are evidence of the fracturing and igneous activity during the final mountain-building event of the Paleozoic era.

Ground-water flow in the regolith-crystalline bedrock aquifer of North Carolina is complex and not well understood.

The groundwater resources of the Piedmont and Blue Ridge Physiographic Provinces are critical to the welfare of the State. For the Coastal Plain and Piedmont Provinces, a regression equation was used to estimate the depth to water.

A conceptual model was used in conjunction with water-level data to estimate the depth to water in the Blue Ridge Province. Purpose: This data set was created as part of the North Carolina Source Water Assessment Program (SWAP).

The radiogenic component of the Pb coupled with the narrow range of Pb/ Pb at Ducktown indicates that much older continental crustal rocks were not involved in the ore-forming s from a vein in the Hamme tungsten district, North Carolina, form a tight grouping which is similar to lead in K-feldspars from postorogenic.

Areas of the Appalachian Piedmont and Blue Ridge provinces underlain by crystalline (igneous and metamorphic) bedrock face a critical demand for ground water, but our knowledge of ground-water flow, storage and chemical behavior in these areas is deficient, largely because ground-water flow is mostly confined to subsurface fractures that are difficult to characterize.
