Lineage

This file contains all the well information used to construct all the geologic and hydrogeologic maps in the project. The file consists of located and unlocated wells selected from the County Well Index (CWI) database of well records and related data maintained by the Minnesota Department of Health and the Minnesota Geological Survey. In addition, well logs from the US Geological Survey were obtained and entered into the data file by Jim Berg . UTM coordinates for the USGS data were derived from the PLS information on the logs. The PLS location information were converted to UTM with a custom DNR extension “PLS to UTM” in Arcview 3.3. Most of this PLS information contained only three section subdivisions so the well locations are only accurate to 142 meters.

ELEVATION

Elevation in feet above mean sea level of the well at the surface.

 

DEPTH_DRLL

Depth well was drilled in feet from the land surface.

 

DEPTH_COMP

Depth completed. Finished depth of the hole in feet; usually the same as 'depth_drll' but can be less if the hole was backfilled before finishing.

 

UTME

UTM easting coordinate

 

UTMN

UTM northing coordinate

 

DATASET

CWILOC - source is from the County Well Index and location verified.
CWIUN - source is from the County Well Index and location unverified.
USGS - source is from US Geological Survey well log.
STRAT - source is from Minnesota Geological Survey core sample data file (to determine stratigraphy).

 

UNIQUE_NO

Field contains Minnesota Unique Well Number, the traditional 6-character field padded with two leading zeros, or the W-Series number, represented as 'W' + Leading zero + W-Series number.

 

OT_CONTROL

Control point for generation of the OT aquifer maps.
"Static water-level" measurement used.
"Well or boring log" record was used.

 

CW_CONTROL

Control point for generation of the CW aquifer maps.
"Static water-level" measurement used.
"Well or boring log" record was used.

 

BROW_CONTR
