Well Records

Information pertaining to water wells in Pawnee and Edwards Counties is tabulated in Tables 15 and 16. The numbers in the first column correspond to well numbers on the map (Pl. 1) and in the tables of analyses (Tables 9 and 10). The numbers in the first column that are in parentheses indicate wells from which samples of water were taken for analysis (Tables 9 and 10).
