KGS Open File Report 90-23B

The data in this open-file report accompany Bulletin 229, Hydrogeology and geochemistry of glacial deposits in northeastern Kansas, by Jane E. Denne, Rachel E. Miller, Lawrence R. Hathaway, and Howard G. O'Connor.

Part B contains the water-quality data (major and minor constituents, trace elements) and the hardness, temperature, specific conductance, and pH for selected wells in Atchison, Brown, Doniphan, Douglas, Jackson, Jefferson, Johnson, Leavenworth, Nemaha, Shawnee, Wabaunsee, and Wyandotte counties in Kansas and Buchanan County in Missouri.

Counties in NE Kansas and NW Missouri that have data available.

Johnson Wyandotte Douglas Leavenworth Jefferson Shawnee Wabaunsee Buchanan Doniphan Atchison Jackson Brown Nemaha

Chart shows how sections are arranged in a township-range system; also shows how quarter calls are named.

Selected Column Explanations

Local Identifier
Code made up of Township, Township Direction, Range, Range Direction, Section, Sub-section codes, and a counter that keeps track of multiple wells at any location.
Station Number
Unique 15 digit identification number assigned to the site (monitoring well). Initially formed from the latitude and logitude, however, the number is an identifier, not a locator. These can be used with the Survey's Wizard database to see if additional information is available.
Geologic Unit
The eight-character code identifying the primary aquifer unit from which water is obtained. Codes are given in the USGS "Catalog of Aquifer Names and Geologic Unit Codes used by the Water Resource Division".
