Description:
Abstract:
An estimation of ground-water recharge for Passaic County. Ground-water recharge is estimated using the NJGS methodology from NJ Geological Survey Report GSR-32 "A Method for Evaluation of Ground-Water-Recharge Areas in New Jersey. Land-use/land-cover, soil and municipality-based climatic data were combined and used to produce an estimate of ground-water recharge in inches/year. Recharge was then ranked by volume (billions of gallons/year) using natural breaks in the percentage of total volume.
Purpose:
To provide maps and digital data to NJGS clients and as required by N.J.S.A. 58:11A, 12-16 et seq.
Supplemental_Information:
The ground-water recharge model is limited to parcels of 1 acre or greater. Largest reliable data resolution is 1:24,000.

Process_Description:
Copied CMB coverage to <cou>ncmb (NCMB) intermediate coverage. Used Spatial Analyst in ArcMap Zonal Statistics function to overlay the climate factor raster, CF, and the drought climate factor raster , DCF, on the NCMB coverage producing a table of statistics for each gw recharge polygon in NCMB into which a cell centroid fell. This table was linked to the NCMB.pat. New recharge values were then calculated using the new climate factors and new county GW recharge ranks were created. The older climate factor, gw recharge and drought gw recharge values were dropped. Sliver polygons without zonal statistical climate factors were edited or merged. Once this was finished the older CMB coverage was archived and the NCMB coverage was renamed as the CMB coverage.

Overview_Description:
Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
Attributes contain recharge in inches/year rounded to 1/100th of an inch (GWR) and nearest inch (INCH) as well as indication of relative ranks (SRANK) areas Ranks also indicate hydric soils, wetlands and open water, and areas were recharge was not calculated due to lack of data. Informational data are included for LULC (MAJOR), soils (SYMBOL, SERIES, HYD), and climate (CF). Locational data indicate where each polygon is in terms of municipality and county.
Entity_and_Attribute_Detail_Citation:
GWR, INCH, LULC are described in GSR-32. Methodology for producing ranks (SRANK are included in GSR-32.
Entity_and_Attribute_Detail_Citation:
Soil information (SYMBOL, SERIES, and HYD) are found in one or more of the following sources: NJ County NRCS(SCS) Soil Surveys, SSURGO, and the NJ State NRCS(SCS) soil database.
Entity_and_Attribute_Detail_Citation:
County and municipality information can be found in NJDEP digital data and myriad other non-digital sources.
