Geology and ground-water resources of Dane County, Wisconsin

Water Supply Paper 1779-U
Prepared in cooperation with the University of Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey



The purpose of the ground-water investigation of Dane County, Wis., was to determine the occurrence, movement, quantity, quality, and availability of ground water in the unconsolidated deposits and the underlying bedrock. The relationships between ground water and surface water were studied in general in Dane County and in detail in the Madison metropolitan area. An analysis was made of the hydrologic system of the Yahara River valley and of the effects of ground-water pumpage on that system.
