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.
A resistivity survey to locate an aquifer in the glacial deposits near Marshfield, WisconsinSpicer, H. Cecil; Edwards, George J.
Ground-water conditions in southwestern Langlade County, Wisconsin
Glacial outwash sand and gravel deposits are the principal aquifer in southwestern Langlade County, Wis. The underlying bedrock of pre-Cambrian age contains little or no water. The source of ground water is local precipitation. Information was collected on more than 300 wells in the area. Movement of ground water is generally southward and locally...Harder, Alfred Harry; Drescher, William James
Ground-water conditions in the Milwaukee-Waukesha area, Wisconsin
Three major aquifers underlie the Milwaukee-Waukesha area: sandstones of Cambrian and Ordovician age, Niagara dolomite of Silurian age, and sand and gravel deposits of Pleistocene age. The Maquoketa shale of Ordovician age acts as a more or less effective seal between the Pleistocene deposits and Niagara dolomite above and the sandstone aquifer...Foley, Frank Clingan; Walton, W.C.; Drescher, W.J.
