Ground-water pumpage and water-level changes in the Milwaukee-Waukesha area, Wisconsin, 1950-61
Artesian water pressure in the deep sandstone aquifer continued to decline throughout most of the Milwaukee-Waukesha area, Wisconsin between 1950 and 1961. Areas of greatest water-level decline were in northeast Waukesha County and in northwest Milwaukee County. The chief cause of the decline was continued heavy pumpage. The major aquifers of...Green, J.H.; Hutchinson, R.D.
Hydrology of the Little Plover River basin, Portage County, Wisconsin, and the effects of water resource development
The Little Plover River basin is in the sand-plain area of central Wisconsin. The basin and the surrounding sand-plain area provide a good fish and wildlife habitat and is a popular locale for sport fishing. Good yields may be obtained in the area from irrigated crops, and the irrigated acreage has been increasing rapidly in recent years....Weeks, Edwin P.; Erickson, Donald W.; Holt, Charles Lee Roy
Preliminary map of the conterminous United States showing depth to and quality of shallowest ground water containing more than 1,000 parts per million dissolved solids
In this atlas, mineralized ground water is viewed presently as a source of water in some areas, but in much of the country as a source for future development. Mineralized water underlies large areas of the country, and its importance will grow as present supplies of fresh water are appropriated and developed. The potential uses fall in two main...Feth, John Henry Frederick
Chapter B in Geological Survey research 1964
This collection of 46 short papers is one of a series to be released as chapters of Geological Survey Research 1964. The papers report on scientific and economic results of current work by members of the Geologic and Water Resources Divisions of the U.S. Geological Survey. Some of the papers present results of completed parts of continuing...
Chapter D in Geological Survey research 1964
This collection of 43 short papers is the last of the chapters of Geological Survey Research 1964. The papers report on scientific and economic results of current work by members of the Geologic, Conservation, Water Resources, and Topographic Divisions of the U.S. Geological Survey. Some of the papers present results of completed parts of...
Flow characteristics of Wisconsin streams: Flow-duration, Hhgh-flow, and low-flow tables for selected streams through water-year 1960
The collection of data on the flow of rivers in Wisconsin started on a continuing basis in 1913. A few streamflow records were started in the late 1800's, one as early as 1888 (Chippewa River at Chippewa Falls). Much of the work has been done under cooperative arrangements between the U.S. Geological Survey and various State and Federal agencies....Young, K.B.
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.
