RECONNAISSANCE OF THE GROUND-WATER RESOURCES OF KINGS AND QUEENS COUNTIES, NEW YORK By Herbert T. Buxton, Julian Soren, Alex Posner, and Peter K. Shernoff ABSTRACT Western Long Island's ground water is being considered for redevelopment as a supplemental source of public supply. The ground-water reservoir in Kings and Queens Counties supplied anCited by: From through , the U.S. Geological Survey investigated the ground-water system of western Long Island, New York, including Kings and Queens counties. This report describes the structure and operation of the western part of the Long Island ground-water system, and the hydrologic effects associated with human development from to the early 's. Buxton, H.T., and Smolensky, D.A., , A quantitative analysis of the development of the ground-water flow system of Long Island, New York: U.S. Geological . Ground-water withdrawals from the aquifers underlying Kings and Queens Counties varied temporally and spatially during the 20th century and caused extreme changes in water levels. The resultant lowering of water levels during periods of heavy pumping caused saltwater intrusion in nearshore areas and the migration of contaminants from land surface into deep aquifers.

Simulation of the effects of development of the ground-water flow system of Long Island, New York The most severe effects would be in Nassau and western Suffolk Counties. From through , the U.S. Geological Survey investigated the ground-water system of western Long Island, New York, including Kings and Queens counties. This report describes the structure and operation of the western part of the Long Island ground-water system, and the hydrologic effects associated with human development from to the. Problem Long Island’s sole-source aquifer system, which includes the Lloyd, Magothy, Jameco, and upper glacial aquifers, supplies groundwater to over million people. As a coastal aquifer system, it is susceptible to saltwater intrusion. Past pumpage and sewering (fig. 1) resulted in increased salinity in most aquifers in all counties (Buxton and Shernoff, ; Misut and others,   Ground water in Bronx, New York, and Richmond Counties with summary data on Kings and Queens Counties, New York City, New York Item Preview 1 bull_gw_pdf.
