The hydrogeologic nomenclature reference table correlates formal geologic and hydrogeologic nomenclature for New Jersey. The units that appear in the table are those used by the NJGS and USGS in geologic mapping and hydrogeologic studies and by the NJDEP Division of Water Supply in regulating water use. The database contains some out-of-use terms that are intended to maintain continuity with current usage. The fields GEONUM, GEONAME, and GEOABB contain designations for units in the NJGS GEODATA database of formal geologic units. The fields HYDROABB, HYDRONAME and HYDRONUM have been developed by NJGS to identify formal and proposed hydrogeologic units in keeping with the USGS Stratigraphic Code of Nomenclature. Units used by the USGS-Water Resources Division, West Trenton, New Jersey are identified by a Ground Water Site Inventory (GWSI) code, assigned to units within the USGS GWSI database and code for units used by the NJDEP_BWA in the administration of water supply allocation permits is also included in the correlation.
