Parts of the West Texas Bolsons (Wild Horse Flat, Michigan Flat, Ryan Flat, and Lobo Flat) Aquifer and Igneous AquiferGroundwater Availability Model (GAM)This map shows the extent and location of parts of the West Texas Bolsons (Wild Horse Flat, Michigan Flat, Ryan Flat, and Lobo Flat) Aquifer and Igneous Aquifer Groundwater Availability Model.

The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) contracted with LBG-Guyton and Associates (who was teamed with Water Prospecting and Resource Consulting LLC, John Shomaker and Associates Inc, Daniel B. Stephens and Associates Inc., and several individual experts) to develop a model for parts of the West Texas Bolsons (Wild Horse Flat, Michigan Flat, Ryan Flat, and Lobo Flat) Aquifer and Igneous Aquifer. The project was completed and delivered in 2004.

Model Files

Please contact David Thorkildsen (512-936-0871) for a copy of the model files.

Model Grid

Model grid cells are geographically assigned to counties, groundwater conservation districts, river basins, groundwater management areas, and regional water planning areas within the model study area using a centroid based approach. The model grid is available in ESRI® shapefile format and comma-delimited text file.

Aquifer Data

Aquifer data is only available as a package for the entire model area and requires GIS software for processing. Due to the size of raw/source data files for this model, this information has not been posted on the web. To request the raw/source data, contact David Thorkildsen (512-936-0871).
