Preliminary Hydrogeologic Assessment and Study Plan for a Regional<br>Ground-Water Resource Investigation of the BLUE RIDGE and PIEDMONT<br>Provinces of North Carolina:<br>USGS Water-Resources Investigations Report 02-4105

Historically, ground-water investigations in the Blue Ridge and Piedmont Provinces of North Carolina have received less emphasis than investigations of the more productive Coastal Plain aquifers. Coastal Plain aquifers supply water to most of that region's population, and these aquifers have received well-justified scientific attention. In contrast, the aquifers of the Blue Ridge and Piedmont serve only a small percentage of the municipal population because abundant rainfall and relief provide adequate surface-water resources. However, the small communities and rural population of the Blue Ridge and Piedmont Provinces are dependent upon ground-water supplies. Droughts, allocation of surface-water flow, contamination incidents, and increased demands on ground-water supplies have focused the need to evaluate ground-water resources in the Blue Ridge and Piedmont Provinces.
