Controlled induced recharge tests at Kalamazoo, Michigan

This article discusses the results of a controlled field testing program, which indicated that definite hydraulic and other advantages may be gained from induced recharging as practiced at Kalamazoo, Michigan. Results include the following: water levels and artesian pressures can be maintained at high stages, the results are lower pumping lifts...

Aquifers in melt-water channels along the southwest flank of the Des Moines Lobe, Lyon County, Minnesota

During the Gary and Mankato substages of Wisconsin glaciation the Des Moines lobe advanced southeastward through the broad lowland of the Minnesota River valley of southwestern Minnesota, and thence southward to central Iowa. Among the most prominent topographic features in Lyon County, Minn., are five southeastward-trending end moraines, two of...

Availability of ground water in Lyon County, Minnesota

Lyon County is in southwestern Minnesota, about 150 miles southwest of Minneapolis and St. Paul The basement rocks in the area consist of granite and quartzite of Precambrian age. These materials are in turn overlain by shale and sandstone of Cretaceous age, glacial drift of Pleistocene age, and alluvium of Recent age. Ground water is available...

Exploratory drilling for ground water in the Mountain-Iron-Virginia area, St. Louis County, Minnesota

The Mountain Iron-Virginia area is a broad, southwest-trending valley in the central part of the Mesabi Range. The valley, which heads in the Laurentian Divide, and covers about 120 square miles, coincides approximately with a bedrock valley filled with as much as 150 feet of glacial deposits. A complex sequence of glacioaqueous sediments made up...

Floods in Wisconsin: Magnitude and frequency

Flood data from gaging stations on Wisconsin rivers and streams are listed in this report. From these data, composite frequency curves were defined which express the ratio of floods of various recurrence intervals to the mean annual flood. Multiple correlation techniques were used to obtain formulas that relate the basin parameters of drainage...

Use of water-well data in interpreting occurrence of aquifers in northeastern Lyon County, Minnesota

In northeastern Lyon County the areal distribution of aquifers of Cretaceous age determined from well-bottom altitudes suggests a series of interbedded sandstones striking northwestward and overlapping one another to the northeast. Probably the numerous thin sandstone aquifers in the area were deposited near the flanks of a Precambrian granite...
