    Jul 30,  · Donna London: We are at the South Carolina Water Resources Conference in North Charleston South Carolina and I am talking with Eric Strom and he is Director of the U.S. Geological Service South Carolina Water Science Center. Eric, thanks for joining us this afternoon. The wedge of sediments present beneath the Coastal Plain of South Carolina and adjacent parts of Georgia and North Carolina consists of sand, silt, clay, and limestone. These strata have been subdivided into six regional aquifers: the surficial aquifer, the Floridan aquifer system, the Tertiary sand aquifer, the Black Creek aquifer, the Middendorf aquifer, and the Cape Fear aquifer.

Get this from a library. Shallow ground-water resources in the Grand Strand of South Carolina. [Gary K Speiran; William F Lichtler; Geological Survey (U.S.)]. The shallow aquifers that underlie the Grand Strand of South Carolina average approximately 60 to ft thick and have variable productivity with some wells producing little water and others producing several hundred gal/min.

These aquifers are separated from the underlying Black Creek aquifer by a ft to ft thick clay confining unit. SOUTH CAROLINA Ground-Water Quality Ground water is the source of supply for 42 percent of the population of South Carolina (fig.
