Ground Water for Irrigation in the Viking Basin, West-Central Minnesota

Description: Abstract: The Viking Basin consists of six glacial outwash areas in Douglas, Ottertail, and Todd Counties, west-central Minnesota. Total area is 340 square miles (880 square kilometers). Soils are sandy and excessively well-drained. Crops grown on the outwash would benefit from supplemental irrigation. Irrigation supplies can be obtained from wells in the surface outwash aquifer in significant parts of the large outwash areas near Carlos and Parkers Prairie and the small outwash area near Clotho. Irrigation supplies are unlikely in the outwash areas near Alexandria, Urbank, and Rose City. Major use of ground water for irrigation may lower ground-water levels sufficiently to affect lake and marsh levels and streamflow out of the irrigation areas. Water from the outwash is of excellent chemical quality for irrigation.

Design of a Groundwater Sampling Network for Minnesota

Description: From introduction: This folio was compiled to facilitate the use of groundwater as a sampling medium to aid in exploration for hitherto undiscovered deposits of uranium in the subsurface rocks of Minnesota. The report consists of the following sheets of the hydrogeologic map of Minnesota: 1) map of bedrock hydrogeology, 2) generalized cross sections of the hydrogeologic map of Minnesota, showing both Quaternary deposits and bedrock, 3) map of waterwells that penetrate Precambrian rocks in Minnesota. A list of these wells, showing locations, names of owners, type of Precambrian aquifers penetrated, lithologic material of the aquifers, and well depths is provided in the appendix to this report.

Executive Correspondence – Letter dtd 06/22/05 to Chairman Principi from Minnesota Representative James Oberstar

Description: Executive Correspondence – Letter dtd 06/22/05 to Chairman Principi from Minnesota Representative James Oberstar expressing concern that, although the BRAC process is supposed to focus on infrastructure, the 2005 recommendations call for the retirement of the 148th Fighter Wing’s F-16 fighters. The Representative also finds it unusual that the USAF’s Future Total Force (FTF) plan also calls for the retirement of the same aircraft and many jobs in 2007. The Representative wants to know whether BRAC and FTF are in any way connected.

The Eruptive and Sedimentary Rocks on Pigeon Point, Minnesota, and Their Contact Phenomena

Description: From preface: The preparation of this paper is due to the fact that the eruptive rocks occurring on Pigeon point, Minnesota, may be taken as types of similar eruptives found so widely spread over the Huronian and Keweenawan areas surrounding Lake Superior, and to the peculiar nature of the alteration these have superinduced in the fragmental rocks through which they have broken.

Digital Models of a Glacial Outwash Aquifer in the Pearl-Sallie Lakes Area, West-Central Minnesota

Description: From purpose and scope: The purpose of this investigation is to 1) study the hydrologic system in a glaciated terrain typified by numerous lakes, with particular focus on the effects of lake-ground-water interchange, 2) simulate the natural system by using two digital modeling methods--areal (map view) and vertical section, and 3) evaluate the utility of the models and determine the kinds and amount of basic data needed to obtain reasonable simulations.
