W. N. White, Perm Livingston, and S. F. Turner reported on the supply of underground water in an area as of 1939 in eastern Texas comprising Harris County, in which Houston is located, and parts of adjoining counties is the subject of an investigation started in December, 1930, as part of a survey of the underground-water resources of Texas by the United States Geological Survey in cooperation with the State Board of Engineers.

The investigations were made under tho direction of 0. E. Meinzer, Geologist-in-Charge of the Division of Ground Water in the U.S. Geological Survey. Though the study is continuing, it has progressed sufficiently to warrant the release of some of the facts that have been disclosed and some general conclusions regarding tho available supply of water in the area.

Further conclusions will be released later, especially as to the recharge in the outcrop areas and as to the water supplies of the Baytown and Alta Loma districts and the rice-growing areas.

The report contains tables of well records and well logs, water-level changes, and water analyses for Harris, Galveston, Waller, Grimes, and Montgomery Counties and Fort Bend and Brazoria Counties east of the Brazos river.
