Springs of Texas

Apr 7, 2014
Dataset was scientifically peer reviewed
Springs are naturally occurring features that convey excess ground water to the land surface; they represent a transition from ground water to surface water. Water issues through one opening, multiple openings, or numerous seeps in the rock or soil. This dataset provides information about springs in Texas including spring names, identification numbers, location, and, if available, water source and use. This dataset does not include every spring in Texas, but is limited to an aggregation of selected digital and hard-copy data of the Texas Water Development Board, the U.S. Geological Survey, and Capitol Environmental Services.
Data Provided By:
This dataset was specifically developed to aggregate information about springs and spring flow into a singular digital database, as part of a cooperative effort between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB). Capitol Environmental Services also contributed information about springs and spring flow. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) provided additional support for the release of Version 1.2.
