Description:
Abstract:
The Public-Community Water-Supply (PCWS) Wells contains information for the wells in New Jersey that supply potable water to public communities. The NJDEP has cataloged and field located using the Global Positioning System (GPS) the PCWS wells as part of the Source Water Area delineation process. The data contained within is from the NJGS Wells Database.
Purpose:
To provide information for the wells in New Jersey that supply potable water to public communities
Supplemental_Information:
Note: Data that are loaded into Internet mapping applications follow the same procedures used in generating ArcInfo coverages or shapefiles.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
All wells were located using GPS with differential correction. Spatial accuracy of these wells were determined to have a maximum error of about + or - 40 feet as determined by the NJGS from comparative field studies involving traditional surveying methods.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
The point coordinates (well locations) were GPS'd and tested against known benchmarks.
Completeness_Report:
All pcws data is generated from the Public Community Water Supply database. The data for the database comes from well records and permits. The spatial data is obtained by GPS.
