The Bureau of Economic Geology (BEG) is conducting hydrogeologic studies of Texas National Guard training facilities at Camps Barkley, Bowie, Mabry, Maxie, and Swift, and Fort Wolters. These investigations, in conjunction with aquatic and biological surveys conducted by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, will provide information needed by the Texas National Guard to plan training and preparedness activities such that environmental resources will be protected and enhanced without compromising national security readiness. This report presents the data collected by BEG researchers and describes progress through August, 1995. Our activities have focused on (1) visiting each training site to meet the Facility Manager, review available records, and tour the grounds; (2) identifying existing data sources; obtaining, reviewing, and culling databases; merging data sets and formatting data for entry into a Geographic Information System (GIS); (3) organizing databases for use with the GIS software package ARC/INFO; (4) conducting perimeter well surveys for each training facility; (5) preparing watershed maps of each training facility; and (6) scheduling field activities for project completion.
