Southern portion of the Gulf Coast Aquifer SystemGroundwater Availability Model (GAM)
Work is underway to update the groundwater availability models for both the Central and Southern sections of the Gulf Coast Aquifer. Please see the page for the Gulf Coast Aquifer System Groundwater Availability Model, which will include both GMAs 15 and 16.
The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) has developed a model of the Gulf Coast Aquifer System in the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas. The model was completed in 2003.
In 2007, TWDB completed an update to the original model for the southern portion of the Gulf Coast Aquifer System. The report for the updated model has been released as TWDB Report 368.
