The Geology of Pennsylvania consists of six distinct physiographic provinces, three of which are subdivided into different sections. Each province has its own economic advantages and geologic hazards and plays an important role in shaping everyday life in the state. They are: (listed from the southeast corner to the northwest corner) the Atlantic Coastal Plain Province, the Piedmont Province.

groundwater we find cannot be used because of it s qualit y. To avoid these problems as much as possible, w e need to understand some basic concept s about groundwater, specifically about g roundwater in Pennsylvania. The geology and landscape of Pennsylvania vary, and the variations affect the movement and quality of groundwater.

A complete list of Pennsylvania counties (and county seat) is shown below. The USGS Pennsylvania Water Science Center is your direct link to all kinds of water-resource information.

Data collection and interpretive studies are done in cooperation with local, state, and federal agencies. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection relies upon a number of parameters to monitor water-supply-drought conditions. Groundwater quality is generally good and an ample supply exists for domestic and stock use.

The largest supplies are usually obtained by tapping the glacial outwash deposits or from bedrock along perennial stream valleys. Four main types of groundwater are found in the county.

The United States Geological Survey has a number of stream gages located throughout Pennsylvania. These estimate stream levels, discharges and record them over time.

This data is published on the web and many stations allow users to plot custom graphs. Get updated Pennsylvania river and stream levels from USGS here. Geologic Map of Warren County.

Groundwater Wells There's a good chance that the average Joe who had to dig a well in ancient Egypt probably did the work with his hands, a shovel, and a bucket.

He would have kept digging until he reached the water table, where all the spaces between the rock and dirt particles are filled with water, and water filled the bottom of the hole.
