Abstract

This report is a compilation of data on surface- and ground-water quality, lake sediment, and lake-level fluctuation collected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) during 1981- 87 on or near the St. Croix Indian Reservation. The purpose of this report is to provide baseline data on selected aspects of the water resources of the St. Croix Indian Reservation as a referenceby which future hydrologic changes can be discerned. The tribal lands are adjacent to Bashaw, BigRound, Big Sand, Clam, Gaslyn, Rice, and Sand Lakes and the Danbury Settlement along the St. Croix River. Water samples from each of these lakes and Bear Lake, which is not adjacent to tribal land, were analyzed for water-quality indicators. Lakelevel fluctuations also were measured for each lake except Big Round Lake. Grain-size and chemical analyses were done on lake-sediment samples from Bashaw, Rice, Clam, Gaslyn, and Bear Lakes. Ground-water samples from wells on or near tribal land in Burnett County (27 wells) and Polk County (3 wells) were collected and analyzed for water quality.
