Archive of USGS Groundwater Technical Procedures Documents
The most current versions of the GWPDs are always available online as USGS Techniques and Methods Report (TM) 1-A1 at http://pubs.usgs.gov/tm/1a1/
A series of groundwater technical procedures documents (GWPDs) has been released by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Water-Resources Discipline, for general use by the public. Because a goal of this series of GWPDs is to remain current with the state of the science, and because procedures change over time, the report has been released in an online format only. As new procedures are developed and released, they will be linked to the online report.
This web site is an archive of superseded versions of the GWPDs. The superseded GWPDs on this site are no longer used or supported by USGS. These documents are provided for historical reference only and may contain outdated methods, broken links, and (or) incorrect contact information.
