Logs of Wells and Test Holes

Given on the following pages are logs of 88 test holes in Douglas County drilled by the State Geological Survey and logs of 108 wells and test holes obtained from drillers and other sources. Logs of test holes originally published by Lohman (1941) are indicated as T-1, T-2, etc.

Because of the large number of logs, they have been split over several pages.
