The Meridian-upper Wilcox aquifer in Lafayette County, Mississippi, is the primary source of water for the public and industrial supply in the county. A comprehensive study of the subsurface hydrogeology of the county was undertaken to predict if the aquifer had the potential to supply sufficient water to prospective industry in Lafayette County. After completing a series of cross sections, the aquifer dimensions were better characterized. Potentiometric mapping provided necessary water level information, and these data were input into analytical models used to project drawdown from pumping in the aquifer. Results suggest the Meridian-upper Wilcox aquifer in western Lafayette County would support an increased groundwater demand of 50% for a thirty year period for a new industrial complex.
