The Barton Springs/Edwards Aquifer Conservation District (BSEACD), in cooperation with Travis County, compiled existing and new hydrogeologic data to evaluate groundwater resources in southwestern Travis County (SWTC). Analysis and interpretation of these data provide the foundation for hydrogeologic evaluations presented in the Hydrogeologic Atlas of Southwest Travis County, Central Texas (Hunt et al., 2020), which refines the area’s hydrogeologic framework and conceptual model, establishes current aquifer conditions, and estimates groundwater use in SWTC.
A geodatabase was created to provide a single repository of the source data for that study. This report describes the development of the geodatabase, documents data sources, and describes the data analyses performed. The geodatabase may help provide baseline data for future groundwater studies of the region. The geodatabase can be found on the Texas Data Repository.
