    • The mineral content of Illinois waters

    • 1908; Aquifers; Bartow, Edward, J.A. Udden, S.W. Parr, and George T. Palmer; ISWS B-4; Water -\- Composition; Water quality
    • The State Water Survey of Illinois began the investigation of the waters of the State in 1895. While the Survey has laid special stress on the determination of the character of the waters from a sanitary standpoint, it has also often been called...
    • Groundwater resources in Champaign County

    • 1950; Groundwater; ISWS RI-6; Municipal water supply; Smith, Harman F.; Water table; Wells
    • This investigation is part of a state - wide investigation of groundwater resources being conducted by the State Water Survey Division. Records of more than 1400 wells have been tabulated. These wells penetrate one or more of three separate and...
    • Leaky artesian aquifer conditions in Illinois

    • 1960; Aquifer; Aquifers -\- Testing; Cambrian-Ordovician aquifer; ISWS RI-39; Walton, William C.
    • Most if not all of the so called artesian aquifers in Illinois are actually leaky artesian aquifers. If the permeability of the confining bed is very low, vertical leakage may be difficult to measure within the average period (8 to 24 hours) of...
    • Selected analytical methods for well and aquifer evaluation

    • 1962; Groundwater -\- Analysis; Groundwater flow -\- Mathematical models; ISWS B-49; Walton, William C.; Wells
    • The practical application of selected analytical methods to well and aquifer evaluation problems in Illinois is described in this report. The subject matter includes formulas and methods used to quantitatively appraise the geohydrologic parameters...
    • Yields of shallow dolomite wells in northern Illinois

    • In northern Illinois large quantities of ground water are withdrawn from wells in shallow dolomite aquifers of Silurian and Ordovician age. The Niagaran and Alexandrian Series of Silurian age and the Galena-Platteville Dolomite of Ordovician age...
    • Ground-water recharge and runoff in Illinois

    • 1965; Aquifer; Aquifers; Artificial recharge of groundwater; Cambrian-Ordovician aquifer; Geologic; Groundwater; Hydrogeology; ISWS RI-48; Maquoketa Group; Runoff; Silurian dolomite aquifer; Walton, William C.; Water-supply; shallow dolomite aquifer
    • Recharge conditions in several areas of northeastern Illinois are described, and recharge rates for several aquifers in central and southern Illinois are given. Recharge rates to deeply buried bedrock and sand-and-gravel aquifers vary from 1300 to...
    • Preliminary report on the ground-water resources of the Havana region in west central Illinois

    • 1965; Aquifer; Aquifers; Groundwater; Hydrogeology; ISWS COOP-3; Sankoty Sand aquifer; Walker, William H., Robert E. Bergstrom, and William C. Walton; Water quality
    • A large undeveloped ground-water reservoir underlies an area along the Illinois and Sangamon Rivers in west-central Illinois. The area is called the Havana region in this report.This report is based on data collected during the investigation and...
    • Groundwater resources of the buried Mahomet Bedrock Valley

    • 1969; Aquifer; Aquifers; Geologic; ISWS RI-62; Mahomet Sand aquifer; Mahomet(Teays) Bedrock Valley; Visocky, Adrian P., and Richard J. Schicht; Water resources development; Water-supply; Wells
    • The buried Mahomet Bedrock Valley and its major tributaries cover an area of about 3700 square miles in east-central Illinois. Large supplies of groundwater chiefly for municipal use are withdrawn from wells in permeable sands and gravels in thick...

    • 1969; Aquifer; Aquifers; Geologic; ISWS RI-62; Mahomet Sand aquifer; Mahomet(Teays) Bedrock Valley; Visocky, Adrian P., and Richard J. Schicht; Water resources development; Water-supply; Wells
    • The buried Mahomet Bedrock Valley and its major tributaries cover an area of about 3700 square miles in east-central Illinois. Large supplies of groundwater chiefly for municipal use are withdrawn from wells in permeable sands and gravels in thick...
    • Groundwater availability in Champaign County

    • 1976; Groundwater; Hydrogeology; ISWS C-124; Sanderson, Ellis W., and Elias Zewde; Water-supply; Wells
    • An estimated 23.3 million gallons of water is pumped from the aquifers of Champaign County each day to satisfy industrial, municipal, domestic, and rural needs. A much larger quantity of water, perhaps as much as 90 million gallons a day (mgd),...

    • Cambrian and Ordovician strata provide much of the groundwater supplyfor approximately 250 municipalities and 150 industries in the northern halfof Illinois. This report represents the cooperative effort of the IllinoisState Water Survey, Illinois...
    • Impacts of irrigation and drought on Illinois ground-water resources

    • 1987; Bowman, Jean A., and Mark A. Collins; Droughts; Groundwater; ISWS RI-109; Irrigation
    • This investigation is the first of three phases of a ground-water management study. In this report, effects of irrigation and drought on the ground-water resources of Illinois are examined. Irrigation water use for five soil types is estimated from...
