Service Description: Aquifer texture represents a classification of surficial material grain size into 10 general categories for use in ground water applications. The aquifer texture attribute (TEXTURE) includes: fine, coarse, fine overlying coarse, and coarse overlying fine grained deposits, as well as artificial fill, beach, salt marsh, swamp, and water. Aquifer texture group (TEXTUREGRP) includes areas of fine grained , fine overlying coarse grained, coarse grained, and coarse overlying fine grained deposits. Surficial materials not included in the surficial aquifer texture groups include till, artificial fill, beach, salt marsh, swamp, and water. All textural terms follow the grain size classification of Stone et al 1992, modified from Wentworth, 1922. The Connecticut Surficial Aquifer Texture Map has been prepared for ground water resource protection, water management, non-point source pollution prevention, and land use planning. Surficial aquifer texture groups were prepared to describe unconsolidated areas of the subsurface with similar properties relative to ground water flow. The Surficial Aquifer Texture classifications are based on the Surficial Materials Map of Connecticut, and are 1:24,000-scale data suitable for geologic and environmental mapping and analysis purposes. Not intended for maps printed at map scales greater or more detailed than 1:24,000 scale (1 inch = 2,000 feet.). Not intended for analysis with other digital data compiled at scales greater than or more detailed than 1:24,000 scale.
