The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has published the Meeker County Ground water Atlas. This Part B atlas covers groundwater conditions and sensitivity to pollution. It expands on Part A, the geologic atlas previously published by the Minnesota Geological Survey.
The atlas can be used to help identify viable water sources, evaluate supply, identify recharge sources and flow, manage sustainability, guide decisions for well and septic system construction, assist in well-head protection for public water supply, and assess pollution sensitivity.
The atlas is available online and in printed form:
• Online: http://www.dnr.state.mn.us Meeker County Groundwater Atlas. The webpage includes GIS files and PDFs of the report and maps. The GIS folder includes GIS files and associated metadata as well as an ArcMap file that displays the data as shown on the published maps. It also includes hyperlinks to image files of the published cross sections. For Part A and other completed counties, consult the County Atlas Status List.
• Paper copies: The geologic and groundwater atlases can be purchased from Minnesota Geological Survey Map Sales, (612) 626-2969.
Partial funding for this project was provided by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund and the Clean Water Fund.
