Summary

Sedimentary Paleozoic rocks in the Hollandale embayment in southeastern Minnesota are as thick as 2,000 ft. This sedimentary sequence, together with the Proterozoic Hinckley Sandstone and the Quaternary drift, is divided into six regional aquifers: undifferentiated drift, Upper Carbonate, St. Peter, Prairie du Chien-Jordan, Ironton-Galesville, and Mount Simon-Hinckley. Potentiometric-surface maps for each aquifer indicate that movement of ground water is predominantly toward the major rivers. The St. Croix, Minnesota, and Mississippi Rivers constitute regional discharge boundaries for ground-water flow. A major ground-water divide in the St. Peter, Prairie du Chien-Jordan, Ironton-Galesville, and Mount Simon-Hinckley aquifers in the [...]
