In the summer of 1977, the Iowa Geological Survey and the U.S. Geological Survey initiated a comprehensive investigation of the water resources of a 16 county area encompassing 6,600 square miles in northwest Iowa. Since that time, more than 30 test wells with a cumulative footage of over 15,000 feet have been drilled. All available geologic data have been incorporated into a hydrogeologic model to assess the regional availability of water in northwest Iowa, particularly for irrigation. The more significant preliminary findings are presented in this interim report.
