    Ground water is the primary source for public, industrial, and agricultural supplies in the northern Mississippi embayment. Withdrawals from the Memphis/Sparta and Fort Pillow aquifers, mainly the Memphis aquifer, have lowered the potentiometric surfaces of these aquifers throughout the area. In the Memphis, Tennessee area, the potentiometric surface of the Memphis aquifer has .

The estimated sustainable yield for the alluvial aquifer is 2, Mgal/d, leaving an unmet demand of Mgal/d (54%). Ground water furnishes 63% of the state’s total water use, and 95% of the ground water used comes from the alluvial aquifer. The Mississippi River Valley alluvial aquifer, is a major source of water for most of eastern Arkansas.

Agriculture is largely dependent on the aquifer as approximately billion gallon per day are withdrawn for that purpose. Much smaller withdrawals also occur for industrial, public supply, and domestic use. Abstract.

Data from some of the continuous record stations are relayed to USGS offices nationwide through telephone lines. The Mississippi River Valley alluvial aquifer is one of the highest use aquifer systems in Arkansas.

In localized areas, the chloride content has been observed to be high enough to limit the use of this water. High chloride concentrations can restrict use for consumption in. Arkansas is the fourth largest user of ground water in the United States.

Since the ’s, ground-water withdrawals have increased while water levels have declined. Long term water-level records are needed to evaluate the effects of climatic variations on the recharge and discharge from ground. Statistical methods and a Geographic Information System (GIS) were used to investigate potential indicators of ground water vulnerability to agricultural chemical contamination in a representative area of the Mississippi River alluvial aquifer.

Haugh, J.K. Carmichael. Alluvial aquifers are generally shallower than sedimentary and fractured rock aquifers and water levels often fluctuate due to varying recharge and pumping rates. Due to their shallow and unconfined nature, alluvial aquifers are susceptible to contamination and pollution.

The Mississippi River Valley alluvial aquifer is a water-bearing assemblage of gravels and sands that underlies most of eastern Arkansas and several adjacent States. Ground-water withdrawals have caused cones of depression to develop in the aquifer’s water-level surface, some as much as feet deep.

• Ground-water levels have declined along the Upper Arkansas River corridor in southwest Kansas in response to consumptive pumping from the alluvial and High Plains aquifers. (See Figure 1.) • Water-level declines in the alluvial aquifer have caused Arkansas River water to seep into the aquifer rather than flowing downstream.

The aquifer boundaries and ground-water level elevation contours are shown on figure 8 and the hydraulic conductivity and recharge values are from pages 44 and 23 of the U.S. Geological Survey Water-Resources Investigations Report, "Geohydrology of alluvium and terrace deposits of the Cimarron River from Freedom to Guthrie.

The Sparta aquifer is Union County's only source of municipal and industrial ground water. Since development began in the early 's ground-water levels have declined more than feet in some areas.
