USGS Water Quality scientist Tim Kresse poses near the Kings River. Kresse was the lead author on "The Aquifers of Arkansas," a comprehensive guide to the aquifers of the state.

A comprehensive guidebook, titled "The Aquifers of Arkansas" is available at no cost to the public. The manual maps and characterizes all the aquifers around the state. We go to the Kings River in Carroll County, situated on the Ozark Aquifer, to meet the lead author and U.S. Geological Survey water quality scientist Dr. Tim Kresse to discuss the mysteries of underground water.
