EXPLANATION:

(1) Aquifer:
Cz = Carrizo aquifer
Wc = Wilcox aquifer

(2) Approximate well elevations from U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and/or Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) data and/or maps. USGS and/or TWDB reported well elevations are not the same for some wells.

(3) Static water level depths shown are reported depths to water below the measuring point datums for the wells, which are generally about 2 to 3 feet above the land surface elevation. USGS, TWDB and other reported water-level data may not be the same as shown if the water-level datums are different.

(4) Use of Water:

P = Public water supply
(U) = Unused
