Ground water modeling projects have been conducted to study and evaluate how the aquifer's recharge areas contribute to the health of ground-water and surface water bodies of Cape Cod. Due to the absence of major rivers on the peninsula, ground-water flow is the dominant influence on the hydrology of the area.

Abstract. The unconsolidated glacial sediments underlying Cape Cod, Massachusetts compose a regional aquifer system that is used both as a source of drinking water and as a disposal site for wastewater; in addition, the discharge of clean ground water from the aquifer system is needed for the maintenance of freshwater and marine ecosystems throughout the region. Leake, S.A., and Prudic, D.E., , Documentation of a computer program to simulate aquifer-system compaction using the modular finite-difference ground-water flow model: Techniques of Water-Resources Investigations of the United States Geological Survey, book 6, chap. A2, 68 p. hydrogeology of the four freshwater lenses of the Lower Cape Cod aquifer system and to assess the effects of changing ground-water pumping, recharge conditions, and sea level on ground-water flow in Lower Cape Cod, Massachusetts. A numerical flow model was developed with the computer code SEAWAT to assist in the analysis of freshwater and. The hydrologic impacts of continuous ground-water withdrawals at , , and Mgal/d (million gallons per day) from a test-well site in the Cape Cod National Seashore, Truro, Massachusetts, were evaluated with a three-dimensional finite-difference steady-state-flow digital model. The digital model was prepared during an earlier study and is only briefly described.

Treated wastewater disposal beds on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, which created a large subsurface plume of contaminated groundwater. A team of scientists has been conducting long-term multidisciplinary research on the physical, chemical, and biological processes that control the transport of contaminants in groundwater. The major cations, anions, and detergents in a plume of contaminated groundwater at Otis Air Base on Cape Cod (Mass., U.S.A.) have moved approximately Cited by: Notice - The USGS Water Resources Mission Area's priority is to maintain the safety and well-being of our communities, including providing critical situational awareness in times of flooding in all 50 U.S. states and additional territories. Our hydrologic monitoring stations continue to send data in near real-time to NWISWeb, and we are continuing critical water monitoring activities to. A ground-water flow simulation for a square-mile area around Great Sandy Bottom (GSB) Pond ( acres) near Pembroke, Massachusetts, was developed for use by local and State water managers to assess the yields for public water supply of local ponds and wells for average climatic and drought conditions and the effects of water withdrawals on nearby water levels Author: Carl S.
