Abstract

The Sand Creek watershed, Choctaw County, Mississippi, constitutes a proposed site for a recreational and water management reservoir. Prior to the development of the site, the geology and hydrogeology of the watershed must be investigated to determine suitability for impoundment. Geological cross sections derived from geophysical logs and field exploration provides information regarding facies distributions within the proposed site area. Discharge characteristics of streams provide data concerning surface runoff that can then be related to the amount of water that is beneficial to the reservoir filling and remaining filled. All data collected and the characteristics of the reservoir are mapped using ArcGIS 9.1 software. The amount of sand located near the abutment of the levee and possible thin ridge with prospect of faulting to the southeast of the abutment is cause for concern. Analysis of the study area suggests that the proposed site is suitable for location of a reservoir.
