Abstract

A study of the geology and ground-water conditions in the.area including Cloquet, Minn., was begun by the United States Geological Survey in 1948 in financial cooperation with the Minnesota State Department of Conservation, at the request of the city of Cloquet for assistance in locating large additional ground-water supplies for industrial and municipal use. The location of the area is show on figure 1. Although the present municipal wells provide a fairly adequate supply for current municipal needs, which averaged about three-quarters of a million gallons a day in 1946, there is great need for large supplies of good water, on the order of 10 million gallons a day, for use by the paper mills and other industries there. At present the industries are using water from the St. Louis River, but the water is unsatisfactory and expensive to use because it contains a large amount of objectionable organic material.
