Transmissivity (product of hydraulic conductivity and aquifer depth) was measured in the water table aquifers characteristic of the lower Atlantic coastal plain using the pumping test method. Four pumping tests were done in coastal South Carolina using the Theis procedure of aquifer analysis. Transmissivity in each test varied less than 10 percent and for the entire aquifer it was 29.9 m²/day with a standard error of 3.75 m²/day. Forest Sci. 27:124-127.
