Abstract

Existing hydrogeologic data and information were synthesized for 20 sites on federally owned rangeland near Dillon, Montana. The purpose was to assist the U.S. Bureau of Land Management in evaluating the potential for developing additional stock-water supplies. Hydrologic and geologic conditions at most of the sites were verified by onsite inspection during the summer of 1984. Each site is described in terms of location, altitude of land surface, inferred aquifer(s), estimated depth to water, estimated drilling depth, estimated yield, estimated dissolved-solids concentration, hydrogeologic setting, and development. A plate shows the location of wells and springs, dissolved-solids concentrations and chemical-constituent diagrams for water samples, ownership status for selected rangeland areas near Dillon.
