Aquifers of Alluvial and Glacial Origin

An aquifer is a geologic formation, group of formations, or part of a formation that contains sufficient saturated, permeable material to yield significant quantities of water to wells and springs. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Water Resources Program collects information on aquifers and other water resources to determine the quantity and quality of the Nation's water supplies. This information is used by Federal, State, and local agencies for water-resources planning and management.
