    An annual recharge cycle causing a seasonal inflow and outflow of seawater within an unconfined coastal aquifer is a new concept introduced by a team at MIT (Michael et al., ).This group had shown earlier via a seepage meter survey of Waquoit Bay that the groundwater discharge was largely saline (Michael et al., ).To explain the source and timing of the high flux of salty water Cited by: @article{osti_, title = {Groundwater Discharge along a Channelized Coastal Plain Stream}, author = {LaSage, Danita M and Sexton, Joshua L and Mukherjee, Abhijit and Fryar, Alan E and Greb, Stephen F}, abstractNote = {In the Coastal Plain of the southeastern USA, streams have commonly been artificially channelized for flood control and agricultural drainage.

Outlaw, Charles E. Haywood. Average annual ground-water discharge from 16 gaged watersheds in the Coastal Plain of Virginia estimated by use of a streamflow hydrograph-separation approach ranged from to inches per year; the median was inches per year.

ground-water discharge within the Coastal Plain of Virginia is a function of the relative areal extent of well- drained uplands and moderately well-drained uplands. On the basis of the hydrogeologic-area approach, ground- water discharge from the Coastal Plain of Virginia averages inches per year.

Ground water, estuarine surface water, ground water discharge, upland soil, and offshore sediment samples were collected from May until February from four agricultural by: Groundwater is a heavily used source of water in the Virginia Coastal Plain.

Long term and widespread groundwater withdrawals have resulted in regional water-level declines, and created the potential for saltwater intrusion.

CHAPTER 6 GROUNDWATER PROTECTION PROGRAMS/ASSESSMENT While Virginia's groundwater is generally of good quality, both the quality and quantity can vary across the five physiographic provinces found in the state.

Reliance on groundwater is also highly variable across the state, depending on a Coastal Plain groundwater system. In Virginia’s Natural Resources Education Guide ters. Some of the precipitation filters into the soil and continues down through cracks and crevices to replenish ground water, a zone where all pore spaces become saturated.

A newly developed regional perspective of the hydrogeology of the Virginia Coastal Plain incorporates updated information on groundwater quality in the area.

Local-scale groundwater-quality information is provided by a comprehensive dataset compiled from multiple Federal and State agency databases. Groundwater-sample chemical-constituent values and related data are presented in tables. Although Virginia’s ground water quality is generally good, this vital resource is threatened by many potential contaminants, and there have been isolated cases of serious ground water pollution in the state.

By law, Virginia is committed to a policy of–anti- degradationÓ of all state waters, including ground water.

Recharge--Minnesota.Models for ground water flow (MODFLOW) and particle tracking (MODPATH) were used to determine ground water flow patterns, principal ground water discharge and recharge zones, and estimates of ground water travel times in an unconfined ground water system of an outer coastal plain watershed on the Delmarva Peninsula, Virginia.Coastal Plain / Piedmont Seepage Swamps This group contains forested vegetation of braided headwaters stream bottoms and seeping toe-slopes saturated by abundant groundwater discharge.

Classified units in the group separate along a gradient of soil fertility and groundwater chemistry, which range from extremely acidic and nutrient-poor to highly calcareous.
