The subsurface delineation of hydrogeologic units of Miocene and younger age and stratigraphic units of Paleocene to Holocene age establishes an interrelationship of these units statewide across much of the coastal Plain of Texas. The 11 dip sections and 1 strike section, which extend from the land surface to 7,600 feet (2,316 meters) below sea level, provide continuity of correlation from the outcrop to the relatively deep subsurface. Sand containing water with less than 3,000 milligrams per liter of dissolved solids, which is shown on the sections, serves as an index of water availability of this quality.
