Iowa Geological Survey Water Atlas 4
By:  and 



Water is vital in the lives of the people and the economy of any area.  In order to utilize this natural resource in the most efficient and beneficial manner, a basic knowledge and understanding of its sources and the occurrence and potential of each source must be gained.  To provide this knowledge, the Water Resources Division of the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the Iowa Geological Survey compiled this atlas describing the water resources available for development in an 11-county area in southeast Iowa.  The report contains information on the availability, quality, and utilization of water from all known sources and the future demands upon the water resources in southeast Iowa.  The information is presented to aid water users and other persons searching for and evaluating sources of water in a particular place, and planners and water managers who must consider water resources on a regional basis.
