Water Resource Reports
Description: Below is a list of water resource reports published by the Pennsylvania Geological Survey. These are technical reports on groundwater resources of a specified area, usually a county. Most of the water resource reports were published as books with a large-scale, full-color geologic map. W 70 and W 71 were online publications, and W 69 was published on CD–ROM.
For reports published before July 2012, more detailed bibliographic information (including types of maps and map scales) is given in the Survey’s list of publications. Short report descriptions can be found on report landing pages, which are accessed through a publications search on the PaGEODE website.
