Water-table maps published by other agencies

The Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission has published a report about the groundwater resources of Kenosha, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Walworth, Washington, and Waukesha Counties. The downloadable report, in Adobe® Acrobat® format, includes page-size water-table maps for each county: http://maps.sewrpc.org/publications/techrep/tr-037_groundwater_resources.pdf

The U.S. Geological Survey has published a number of water-table maps. The WGNHS sells one U.S. Geological Survey publication that contains a water-table map ($14):

Sherrill, M.G., 1978, Geology and ground water in Door County, Wisconsin, with emphasis on contamination potential in the Silurian dolomite: U.S. Geological Survey Water Supply Paper 2047, 38 p, 5 pl. (scale 1:125,000). It is also available online at <http://pubs.er.usgs.gov/pubs/wsp/wsp2047>.

The U.S. Geological Survey has published other water-table maps that are not sold by WGNHS; contact U.S. Geological Survey or your library. As a convenience to our customers, we provide a listing of these USGS maps:
