The Surface Casing Estimator Site is a website that provides estimates of possible surface-casing requirements for wells and related information. Work during FY16 for the Surface Casing Estimator Site project involved (1) scanning more than 7,960 geophysical logs of the Q-log library for 12 counties and parts of 3 counties, (2) constructing digital data sets composed of geologic information that relates to estimating surface-casing requirements and groundwater depths for 5 counties in East Texas, and (3) merging/programming the new data with the Website's existing data. The Estimator Site provides information on elevations and depths for the top and base of fresh water; the base of usable-quality water; the base of underground sources of drinking water; and the top and base of critical water-bearing stratigraphic units, aquifer names, geophysical logs, and well locations. The FY16 work has enabled about 375 additional geophysical logs in 5 East Texas counties to be viewed through the Surface Casing Estimator Site.
