Geology and ground-water resources of Rock County, Wisconsin
Rock County is in south-central Wisconsin adjacent to the Illinois State line. The county has an area of about 723 square miles and had a population of about 113,000 in 1957 ; it is one of the leading agricultural and industrial counties in the State. The total annual precipitation averages about 32 inches, and the mean annual temperature is about...LeRoux, E.F.
Ground-water conditions in the Green Bay area, Wisconsin, 1950-60
The Green Bay area, which includes parts of Brown, Outagamie, and Shawano Counties, has an area of about 525 square miles in eastern Wisconsin at the south end of Green Bay. In 1960, it had a population estimated at 124,000; Green Bay, the largest city in the area, had a population of 62,888. The Green Bay area is underlain by a basement complex...Knowles, Doyle B.
Ground-water resources of Waupaca County, Wisconsin
Waupaca County is in east-central Wisconsin. No serious ground-water problems existed in 1960 except in a few localities where crystalline rock is near land surface or is covered by nearly impermeable till. The use of ground water for irrigation has not appreciably affected ground-water levels. The county is covered by Pleistocene till,...Berkstresser, Charles F.
Water resources of the Green Bay area, Wisconsin: G in Water resources of industrial regions: A summary of the source, occurrence, availability, and use of water in the area
The Green Bay area comprises an area of about 525 square miles in eastern Wisconsin at the south end of Green Bay. It includes the western three-fourths of Brown County and the eastern one-ninth of Outagamie County. In 1960, the population of the area was estimated at 124,000. The most prominent topographic feature is the northwest-facing,...Knowles, Doyle Blewer; Dreher, F.C.; Whetstone, George Walter
Hydrology of upper Black Earth Creek basin, Wisconsin
The upper Black Earth Creek drainage basin has an area of 46 square miles and is in Dane County in south-central Wisconsin. The oldest rock exposed in the valley walls is the sandstone of Late Cambrian age. Dolomite of the Prairie du Chien Group of Ordovician age overlies the sandstone and forms the. resistant cap on the hills. The St. Peter...Cline, Denzel R.; Busby, Mark W.
Sediment characteristics of small streams in southern Wisconsin, 1954-59
The results of investigations of the sediment and water discharge characteristics of Black Earth Creek, Mount Vernon Creek, and Yellowstone River from 1954 to 1959 and Dell Creek for 1958 and 1959 indicate large differences in annual runoff and sediment yields. The suspended-sediment discharge of Black Earth Creek averaged 3,260 tons per year or...Collier, Charles R.
The role of ground water in the national water situation: With state summaries based on reports by District Offices of Ground Water Branch
Ground water in the United States has emerged from a quantitatively minor (though incalculably valuable) water source, whose chief role was in the settlement of primitive areas, to a major source now accounting for one-fifth to one-sixth of the Nation's total withdrawal requirements for water. With the growth in ground-water withdrawals is an...McGuinness, Charles Lee
Geology and ground-water resources of Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin
The principal water-bearing rocks underlying Fond du Lac County, Wis., are sandstones of Cambrian and Ordovician age and dolomite of Silurian age. Other aquifers include dolomite of Ordovician age and sand. and gravel of Quaternary age. Crystalline rocks of Precambrian age, which underlie all the water-bearing formations, form a practically...Newport, Thomas G.
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...Ericson, D.W.
Wisconsin River near Dekorra, Wisconsin, flood-flow characteristics at proposed bridge site on the Wisconsin freeway in Columbia CountyEricson, D.W.
Geology and ground-water resources of Outagamie County, Wisconsin
Outagamie County is in east-central Wisconsin. It has no serious groundwater problem at present, but the county is important as a recharge area for the principal aquifers supplying water to Brown County and industrial Green Bay to the east. The county is covered by glacial drift and lake deposits of the Wisconsin stage of glaciation. In the...LeRoux, E.F.
Electrical resistivity measurements in the Neillsville area, Wisconsin
Sixty-eight electrical depth profiles were completed in the vicinity of Neillsville, Wis. to obtain information on the water-bearing beds in the glacial moraine and consolidated sedimentary rocks in the area. No productive aquifers were found but the best areas for test drilling are described. The basic theory and interpretation procedures,...Spicer, H. Cecil; Edwards, George J.
