Abstract

The George County Reservoir Lake Project in Mississippi is proposed in order to maintain flow of the southern portion of the Pascagoula River and public recreation as a secondary use. Possible reservoir sites include basins of both the Big Cedar Creek and the Little Cedar Creek. The purpose of this study is to develop a numerical model that could be used to determine the rate the reservoir would fill and to reach saturation levels in the strata adjacent to the reservoir. The groundwater models predicted the groundwater levels withstand pumping and drought stress, thus likely to be able to sufficiently hold the 100 million gallons the county and areas to the south would need. However, there should be extreme caution on the construction of the reservoirs and the dams and further model calibration would need to be incorporated at the time of construction.
