Rustler AquiferGroundwater Availability Model (GAM)This map shows the extent and location of the Rustler Aquifer Groundwater Availability Model.

In October 2009, the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) contracted with INTERA, Inc. (who teamed with Dr. Dennis Powers, Dr. John Sharp, and Dr. Robert Holt) to develop a groundwater availability model for the Rustler Aquifer. The project was completed in 2012.

Model Files

Please contact the GAM Section (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 the GAM Section (512-936-0871).
