The population of the Atlanta Metropolitan area of northern Georgia continues to grow at a rapid pace, and as a result, the demand for water supplies steadily increases. Exploration for ground-water resources, as a supplement to surface-water supplies, is being pursued by many city and county governments. ·The application of effective investigative methods to characterize complex igneous and metamorphic fractured bedrock aquifers of the Piedmont physiographic province is essential to the success of these ground-water exploration programs. The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the City of Lawrenceville, Ga., began a study in December 1994 to evaluate the applicability of various investigative techniques for field characterization of fractured crystalline-bedrock aquifers near Lawrenceville.
