Welcome to the New Hampshire Geological Survey (NHGS). The Survey's mission is to collect data and perform research on the land, mineral, and water resources of the state, and disseminate the findings to the public through maps, reports, and other publications. Major activities include:

  • Providing state agencies, local governments, planning commissions, the private sector, and the general public with geologic information to meet their scientific, educational, and business needs.
  • Mapping New Hampshire’s bedrock and surficial geology, mineral deposits, and stratified-drift aquifers, as well as producing geologic publications.
  • Maintaining statewide databases of well completion records, water use information and surface water features.
  • Overseeing a statewide network of observation wells to monitor groundwater levels.
  • Assessing hazards posed by natural events such as floods, landslides, and earthquakes.
