Abstract

A study of the Des Moines River alluvial aquifer from Boone County north to the Minnesota border was conducted to provide information on water availability and water quality. The study was partially funded through a contract with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The data collection techniques included a seismic refraction survey of the alluvial valley to determine alluvial thicknesses, well-installation and measurement of water levels, and collection of water samples for chemical analysis.
