Lacombe and Donald A. Storck. The Coastal Plain aquifers of New Jersey provide an important source of water for more than million people. The USGS, in cooperation with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, has been measuring water levels in the confined aquifers of the New Jersey Coastal Plain every five years beginning in These aquifers have large cones of depression centered in Camden, Middlesex, and Monmouth Counties.

Water levels declined 5 to 20 feet in these areas between and Deep cones of depression in coastal Monmouth and Ocean Counties in the Englishtown and Wenonah-Mount Laurel aquifers are similar in location and shape, due to a good hydraulic connection between these aquifers.

The amount of fresh water stored in oceans is many times greater than the amount of ground water. F In confined aquifers the water is under pressure and rises to a level above the top of the aquifer.

The Southeastern Coastal Plain aquifer system consists of four regional aquifers that are composed predominately of clastic rocks ranging in age from Cretaceous to late Tertiary.

The southern and southeastern limits of the aquifer system extend past the coastline in most places.

No new withdrawals are being permitted for the Clayton aquifer in southwest Georgia, and the water-level decline has greatly slowed. Above the Clayton aquifer is the Claiborne/Gordon aquifer. Because it is sandy and thinner than the Cretaceous aquifer, it is not as productive as the state's other major aquifers.

groundwater withdrawals in southern New Jersey, due to population growth and the pres­ ence of more productive Coastal Plain aquifers, have increased the risk of saltwater intrusion, which can threaten the usable supply.
