  15. Jacob 2 3 1 Brazos River Alluvium Aquifer Brazos River Alluvium Compartmentalization (MS Geology) Aquifer 15

  16. Geoprobe descriptions 16

  17. Brazos River Alluvium aquifer cross section 17

  18. Compartments Brazos River Alluvium Aquifer 18

  19. The aquifer flows toward the river • Groundwater flows from the aquifer toward the Brazos River. • The Brazos River is a gaining stream. • Recharge comes from local rain. The aquifer is compartmentalized • The river acts as a hydrologic boundary. • Bedrock separates sections of the Brazos River alluvium aquifer. 19
