Abstract

This report contains the results of hydrogeological investigations in the Linn County area, principally related to the important Silurian carbonate (dolomite) aquifer system. The work was conducted cooperatively by the U. S. Geological Survey and the Iowa Geological Survey. The information is particularly relevant today, as legislative and media attention continue to focus on the issues of contamination, protection, allocation and conservation of groundwater resources. Indeed, information derived from this study already has been utilized in ongoing analyses of those issues. Because the report represents a significant contribution to our knowledge about the occurrence and movement of groundwater in carbonate (limestone and dolomite) aquifers, it will be a valuable tool for management of groundwater resources not only within the study area, but throughout much of eastern Iowa.
