CHAPTER 1 – DEFINITIONS Chapter 1. As part of the National Water Quality Program (NWQP), groundwater quality is being characterized in 20 of the Nation's 68 Principal Aquifers. These 20 aquifers supply most of the groundwater used in the United States—they account for more than three-quarters of the groundwater pumped for public supply and 85 percent of the groundwater pumped for domestic supply.

The USGS annually monitors groundwater levels in thousands of wells in the United States. Groundwater level data are collected and stored as either discrete field-water-level measurements or as continuous time-series data from automated recorders.

Data from some of the continuous record stations are relayed to USGS offices nationwide through telephone lines or by satellite transmissions.
