On the following pages are tabulated the information pertaining to water wells in Morton County (table 7). The numbers in the first column correspond to the well numbers on the map (pl. 2) and in the table of analyses (table 5). The wells are listed in order by townships from north to south and by ranges from east to west. Within a township the wells are listed in the order of the sections. Depths of wells and water levels that were reported rather than measured are indicated by a footnote and are subject to error. Depths of wells not classed as "reported" are measured and given to the nearest 0.1 foot below the measuring point described in the table. Similarly, measured water levels are given to the nearest 0.01 foot. Records of a few wells in adjoining counties are included.
