Hydrologic coefficients for the Ogallala aquifer in the vicinity of Roy, Harding County, New Mexico
Hugh T. Kelly

Abstract:

An aquifer test on the Village of Roy Municipal Well No. 1 was run as part of a general study of the ground-water resources available to the village. Observations of water-level changes resulting from pumping well No. I were made in other city wells and nearby stock wells. Analyses of the data collected indicate the coefficient of storage ranges from 0.0018 to 0.03, and the transmissivity from about 5,000 to about 16,000 gpd/ft. The best data seem to be those yielding an "S" of 0.03 and a "T" of 15,000 gpd/ft.
