Lineage

This file contains point information representing wells with verified locations 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.This well information was used to construct all of the geologic and hydrogeologic maps in this project. It includes stratigraphic data that were used to map the physical boundaries of surficial and buried sand aquifers. The file also includes the static water levels in those aquifers that were used to create the water-table and potentiometric-surface elevation maps.This file also includes groundwater level monitoring well locations and wells used for aquifer characterization.

Entity and Attribute Overview

 

Entity and Attribute Detailed Citation

indexpt

 

 

 

RELATEID

Four 0's followed by 6 digit unique number for wells, or the Lake id from DNR Lakes Database + 2 digits for a site at a lake (01,02, etc.), or a 2-digit county number followed by 'A' followed by a 7-digit unique number for a spring

 

AQUIFER

Aquifer code. The aquifers are identified as "QBAA", "CECR", "CEMS", "CTCE", "CWOC", "CTCW", "CWMS", "CJDN", "CMFL", "CMTS", "CSLT", "CSTL", "KRET", "MTPL", "OPCJ", "OPDC", "OSTP", "PMSU", "QWTA", and "CTLR".

 

AQUIFER_Q

Quaternary aquifer name, usually mapped at county scale. The aquifers are identified as "sdo", "sg", "sr", "su", and "sx". Quaternary aquifers are named after buried sand units shown on Plate 5, Part A.  Bedrock aquifers are represented by "bdrk ".

 

CONTROL

Control point for generation of the aquifer maps. "Aquifer test location", "Static water-level" measurment used, and "Groundwater-level monitoring well". Monitoring well number indicates location of DNR monitoring well used to generate hydrograph.

 

XSEC
(wells used in the construction of published hydrogeologic cross sections)
 

Cross section label, either "A", "B", "C", "D", "E", or "F".
