Lineage The majority of data point locations were acquired from CWI (County Well Index), however additional data and attributes were added by Randy Bradt (i.e chemistry data). A small number of data points were acquired from the GWMAP program at the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. Also included are sampling locations for water level measurements conducted for this atlasing program. All chemistry data was collected by Randy Bradt.
