The San Antonio segment of the Edwards (Balcones Fault Zone) Aquifer of south-central Texas is one of the most important and prolific karst aquifers in the United States. Extending from Kinney County (west) to Hays County (northeast), it is the primary source of water for the municipal and agricultural communities surrounding the greater San.

The Devils River in south-central Texas has been recognized as one of the remaining pristine rivers in the state and is a key tributary to the Rio Grande, providing essential freshwater flows to south Texas and the Rio Grande Valley ().The Devils River watershed, located in the western Edwards-Trinity Aquifer (), exhibits aquifer and hydraulic characteristics representative of the greater.

Nomenclature. —The name Edwards, 36 of Hill and Vaughan (), replaced the terms Caprina limestone of B.

The Edwards Plateau of central and west-central Texas covers ab square kilometers, an area larger than the state of Louisiana (LBJ School of Public Affairs, ), and contains four distinct subregions (Fig.

1): (1) The eastern and southeastern portion, bordered by the Balcones Fault zone, is a highly dissected upthrown.

Member 2 of the Edwards Limestone is about 12 meters (40 feet) of thin bedded, fine-grained, dolomitic limestone, and fine-grained flaggy limestone. Nodular chert is common. Member 3 of the Edwards Limestone consists of mostly soft, burrowed limestone (micrite) that forms a marly slope.

It is from 3 to 5 meters (10 to 15 feet) thick. Described in central Texas where it is uppermost formation in Fredericksburg group. Enclosed by Edwards limestone below and Georgetown limestone above. Thickness 25 feet near Blum in Hill County; thins southward along outcrop and disappears in southern McLennan County.

The Edwards Group is a geologic group in preserves fossils dating back to the Cretaceous period. A stratigraphic column at the Mount Bonnell Fault location starts with the Lower Cretaceous Trinity Group overlain by the Edwards Group.

Upper Cretaceous formations follow, starting with the Del Rio Clay, Buda Limestone, and then the Eagle Ford Group. Country: United States.

The Edwards Aquifer is an important source of water for irrigated agriculture and for rural communities in the Edwards Plateau, as well as for growing urban populations in central Texas. For example, San Antonio is the largest city in the United States which depends solely on groundwater for its drinking water.

The Edwards Aquifer is composed of the Comanche Peak Limestone, Edwards Limestone, and Georgetown Limestone. Rose () raised the Edwards Limestone to group status in central Texas and divided it into the Kainer (lower) and Person (upper) members.

The Edwards Aquifer was later divided into hydrostratigraphic units by Maclay and Small ( RI Stratigraphy of the Fredericksburg Division, South-Central Texas, by C.
