2 Schematic cross section showing stratigraphic and structural relationships of geologic units Flow Potential Between Stacked Karst Aquifers in Central Texas, USA 45 Glen Rose Limestones consist mostly of limestone, dolomite, shale, and marl. Some units of the Upper Glen Rose Limestone contain evaporates. Studies of structures along the Balcones Fault Zone (BFZ) (Collins and Hovorka 1997) indicate that much of this area consists of southeast dipping, en echelon, normal faults with throws of as much as 260 m.

A steady-state simulation was carried out to replicate natural system conditions. 5 Mm3 /year. Transient calibration ensued, taking into account the variability of pumping and recharge rates over time. Calibration considers monthly time steps, spanning a nine-year period (1999–2007). Model calibration relies on observed groundwater levels, since the springs dried up long before the modelled interval. Figure 2 presents the calibration results. As shown, the model replicates the observed trend to a reasonable extent.

Hunt Abstract The Cretaceous-age Middle Trinity Aquifer in central Texas exhibits significant karst features where it is exposed at the surface. Where these units are overlain by the karstic Upper Trinity and Edwards Aquifers, the degree of karstification is not known, but groundwater in certain units of the Middle Trinity Aquifer is chemically similar to shallow groundwater in this area.
