Ground-water resources of Nelson County, northeastern North Dakota

Hydrologic Atlas 428



This investigation is part of a Statewide program to determine the location and extent of the ground-water reservoirs (aquifers); to evaluate the occurrence and movement of ground water within these aquifers, including the sources of recharge and discharge; and to determine the chemical quality of the ground water.

Nelson County covers an area of approximately 1,000 square miles in northeastern North Dakota.  The study, which began in July 1967, has been made cooperatively by the U.S. Geological Survey, the North Dakota State Water Commission, the North Dakota Geological Survey, and the Nelson County Water Management District.  The final results of the study will be published in three parts by the cooperating State agencies.
