Abstract:
ADVISORY: NJDEP is in the process of updating this metadata file to comply with the FGDC's Content Standards for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM). In order to make this data available immediately to the public, NJDEP is releasing it to the New Jersey Geographic Metadata Clearinghouse with the existing metadata. The updated metadata will be made available after the review and verification of the content of the metadata has been completed.

There are seven sole-source aquifers (SSAs) in New Jersey. These are defined by the EPA as those aquifers that contribute more than 50% of the drinking water to a specific area and the water would be impossible to replace if the aquifer were contaminated. Sole-source aquifers are defined with guidelines set forth by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as authorized in section 1424(e) of the Safe Drinking Water act of 1974. Any federally-funded project in an area that could affect ground-water in a sole-source aquifer must be reviewed by the USEPA. This 'project review area' includes the aquifer's 'recharge zone' and it's 'stream-flow source zone'. The recharge zone is the area through which water recharges the aquifer. The source zone is the upstream area that contributes recharge water to the aquifer. Seven sole-source aquifers are defined in New Jersey and their project review areas cover most of the state.

Description of the seven sole-source aquifers can be found in Entity and Attribute information and they are based on notifications published in the Federal Register. The order of chronological approval is as follows:

1.) Buried Valley SSA 2.) Ridgewood SSA 3.) Rockaway SSA 4.) Highlands SSA 5.) Northwest New Jersey SSA 6.) Coastal Plain SSA 7.) Ramapo SSA

The sole source aquifer program is a federal program administered by the Environmental Protection Agency under the Safe Drinking Water Act. All questions about the program should be addressed to them.

The EPA sometimes modifies the project review areas as published in the Federal Register in order to better protect the sole-source aquifer. For example, the Buried-Valley sole-source aquifer did not include a stream-flow source zone as originally published. EPA considers the project review area to include the Whippany and Upper Passaic watersheds (Larry Rinaldo, EPA region II, personal communication.)

This coverage contains an ARC/INFO Geographic Information System (GIS) polygon coverage of the sole-source aquifers for New Jersey that are approved as of June 1998. The coverage was built by the N.J. Geological Survey from standard GIS files of U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) hydrologic units, New Jersey state and municipal boundaries, and aquifers.

Logical_Consistency_Report:
Several of the SSA project review areas overlap. These areas generally occur where part of the stream-flow source zone of one SSA overlies the recharge zone of another. The overlap areas were eliminated in the njsolesrc coverage by assigning area preference according to three conditions:

1) SSA polygons were given preference based on whose recharge zone covers the area.

In areas where the recharge zones of two SSAs overlap, preference was assigned based on

2) hydrologic units over municipal areas, and

3) which official name more accurately defines the overlap area.

The five overlapping SSA project review areas are detailed below.

(1) The Coastal Plain SSA project review area includes only a part of its formally designated stream-flow source zone. The part of its source zone lying upstream of the Coastal Plain physiographic province that overlaps the Northwest New Jersey SSA recharge zone was assigned to the Northwest New Jersey SSA project review area.

(2) The Northwest New Jersey SSA recharge area formally includes the Millstone River and that part of the Millstone River watershed that does not lie on the Coastal Plain. These conditions are contradictory because the watershed encompasses the river. Therefore, only those parts of the Millstone River watershed and Millstone River lying outside of the Coastal Plain are included in the Northwest New Jersey SSA stream-flow source zone and project review area.

(3) The Buried Valley SSA recharge area is based solely on political boundaries. Its stream-flow source zone is the area contributing flow to these boundaries. This definition has resulted in overlap with other SSA areas that were subsequently defined. These overlaps include:

(3.A) The southwestern side of the Buried Valley SSA partially overlaps the recharge zone of the Northwest New Jersey SSA. This area lies within the South Branch Raritan River watershed and is preferentially assigned to the Northwest New Jersey SSA project review area because of hydrologic-unit preference over political boundaries.

(3.B) Part of the Buried Valley SSA recharge area and stream-flow source zone overlies the Rockaway River watershed. The overlap areas are assigned to the Rockaway River SSA project review area because the Rockaway SSA recharge zone includes the Rockaway River watershed.

(4)The Rockaway SSA definition results in two other overlap area:

(4.A) The Rockaway SSA includes the Black (Upper Lamington)River watershed in Roxbury. However, the Black River is a tributary to the South Branch Raritan and thus also part of the recharge zone of the Northwest New Jersey SSA. This overlap area is assigned to the Northwest New Jersey SSA project review area.

(4.B) The Rockaway SSA includes the Lake Arrowhead watershed in Denville. This overlies the defined recharge of the Buried Valley SSA. This overlap area is assigned to the Buried Valley SSA project review area.

(5) The Ridgewood SSA's recharge zone is defined based on municipal boundaries. The western part of this recharge zone lies within the watershed of the Ramapo River. However, this watershed is defined as the recharge zone of the Ramapo SSA. Thus this overlap area is assigned to the Ramapo SSA project review area.

Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The njsolesrc coverage inherits it's accuracy from the three source coverages used for its development. The stmunq and dephuc14 coverages are based on delineation from U.S. Geological Survey 7-1/2' topographic quadrangles, and are assumed to conform to the National Mapping Accuracy Standard (NMAS) for 1:24,000-scale data (plus or minus 40.00 ft). The source coverage for the bqfr250 coverage was generated at the 1:250,000 scale. The njsolesrce coverage should therefore be considered accurate to the NMAS standard for 1:250,000-scale data.

Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form: vector digital data
Other_Citation_Details:
Municipal boundaries in New Jersey were gathered from USGS topoquads and other sources in 1987. Since that time, updates to the data have been limited to noting consolidations of boundaries. The scale of the original data varies, relying primarily on 1:24,000 topoquads.

Changes were made when inconsistancies with other maps were found based on preponderance of data. In area where the line was labeled as aproximate attempts were made to correctly locate the boundary. The 1986 photoquads were used to move the boundary lines to photo-identifiable features as needed. Changes less than 5 acres were not made.

The coverge stmunq has been replaced by the coverage stmun. This coverage is described in more detail at:

Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form: vector digital data
Other_Citation_Details:
Drainage basins are delineated from 1:24,000-scale (7.5-minute) USGS quadrangles. The delineations have been developed for general purpose use by USGS District staff over the past 20 years. Arc and polygon attributes have been included in the coverage with basin names and ranks of divides, and 14-digit hydrologic unit codes. The New Jersey state boundary as origionally defined in the USGS source coverage does not match that used by the NJDEP. Therefore the coverage was edited by the NJ Geological Survey to remove the USGS state boundary and insert the NJDEP state boundary, thus resolving most potential clipping errors.

Title: Aquifers of New Jersey
Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form: vector digital data
Other_Citation_Details:
The Aquifers of New Jersey consists of two ARC/INFO Geographic Information Systems (GIS) coverages of the bedrock and surficial aquifers and confining units in New Jersey. The bedrock-aquifer coverage includes fractured-rock aquifers of the Valley and Ridge, Highlands, and Piedmont physiographic provinces,and aquifers and confining units of the Coastal Plain physiographic province. The surfical-aquifer coverage includes glacial sediment exceeding 50 ft. thickness in northern New Jersey, and surficial sediment thicker than 50 ft. overlying Coastal Plain aquifers and confining units. Both coverages are generalized to the 1:250,000 scale by eliminating polygons with less than 1,000,000 sq. ft. area (about 23 acres). The data were digitized from various published and unpublished 1:24,000, 1:100,000, and 1:250,000 scale geologic maps compiled from 1987 to 1993.

The bedrock aquifer coverage was used to define the coastal plain, higland, northwest NJ and ramapo sole-source aquifers.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The sole-source aquifer coverage was created using ARC/INFO ARCEDIT (ver. 7.0.1) running on a Sun SPARC20 workstation. The coverage was built by first copying the N.J. State boundary lines from the stmunq into a new coverage saved as njsolesrc. Arcs representing the boundaries for each SSA project review area were then appended to the new coverage by copying arcs from, or generating new arcs based on, the three source coverages. Coverage development proceeded in the following manner.

1) Coastal Plain - Arc segments composing the northwest continuous contact of the prma aquifer from the baqfr250 coverage were manually selected and appended to the njsolesrc coverage, and intersected with arcs for the State boundary and Coastal Plain SSA. Arc segments corresponding to boundaries of HUC11 polygons with label values of 02030105070, 02030105080, 02030105100, 02030105110, were then selected, appended to njsolesrc, and intersected with arcs for the State boundary, the Coastal Plain SSA, and the previous set of HUC8 arcs. All remaining arcs within the resulting polygon were deleted.

3) Highlands - Arc segments corresponding to boundaries of HUC11 polygons with label values of 02030103050 and 02030103070 were selected, appended to njsolesrc, and intersected with arcs for the State boundary and the Northwest New Jersey SSA. Extraneous arc segments were deleted.

4) Ramapo - Arc segments corresponding to the boundary of the HUC11 polygon with a label value of 02030103100 were selected, appended to njsolesrc, and intersected with arcs for the State boundary and the Highlands SSA. Extraneous arc segments were deleted.

5) Ridgewood - Arc segments corresponding to the boundary for the HUC11 polygon with a label value of 02030103140 were selected, appended to njsolesrc, and intersected with arcs for the State boundary and the Ramapo SSA. Arc segments corresponding to the boundaries of polygons from the stmunq coverage with Mun labels for Wyckoff Twp., Ridgewood Village, and Glen Rock Boro were then selected, appended to njsolesrc, and intersected with the HUC11 boundary. Arc segments corresponding to the boundary of the HUC14 polygon with a label value of 02030103140040 were then selected, appended to njsolesrc, and intersected with arcs for the HUC11 polygon and Ridgewood Village. All remaining arcs within the resulting polygon were deleted.

6) Rockaway - Arc segments corresponding to boundaries of HUC11 polygons with label values of 02030103020, 02030103030, and 02030103040 were selected, appended to njsolesrc, and intersected with arcs for the Northwest New Jersey and Highlands SSAs. Arc segments corresponding to the boundary for the polygon from the stmunq coverage with Mun label for Montville Twp were then selected, appended to njsolesrc, and intersected with the HUC11 boundary. All remaining arcs within the resulting polygon were deleted.

7) Buried Valley - Arc segments corresponding to the boundaries of HUC11 polygons with label values of 02030103010 and 02030103040 were selected, appended to njsolesrc, and intersected with arcs for the Northwest New Jersey and Rockaway SSAs. Arc segments corresponding to the boundaries of polygons from the stmunq coverage with Mun labels for Bernards Twp, Warren Twp, Berkeley Heigths Twp, Summit City, Millburn Twp, Fairfield Boro, and North Caldwell Boro were then selected, appended to njsolesrc, and intersected with the HUC11 boundaries. All remaining arcs within the resulting polygon were deleted.

The njsolesrc coverage was cleaned and built using default program values for dangle length (10,000.000 ft) and fuzzy tolerance (0.183 ft). A new polygon item (ssaname) was added to the coverage polygon attribute table for specifying the name of each SSA. SSA names were manually added.

*Physiographic province boundaries needed for sole-source aquifer area delineation were extracted from correlative aquifer boundaries.
