Groundwater Bulletins

Groundwater Bulletins is a series of 201 reports published from 1950 to 1965. They have all been digitized and published below. Bulletins typically present the results of long-term or extensive investigations, often covering a large region or county. Topics include well records, geology and groundwater resources, but are not limited to groundwater themes. All are out of print but they've been scanned & published here electronically. To find a specific Bulletin on this Web page, click inside the Search Table box and enter a keyword or phrase.

Accessibility note: Many of these report pdf's were scanned from hard copy and may not be fully accessible for users of certain assistive technologies; however, if you need help please contact the webmaster and we will provide a text-based copy or otherwise make every effort to assist you.
