Figure 13. Map of the subsurface bedrock topography in Nemaha, Brown, western Doniphan, northern Jackson, western Atchison, and northwestern Jefferson counties in northeastern Kansas from Denne et al (1998). A major northwest-southeast trending buried valley system is present beneath the glacial deposits in Nemaha and northern Jackson counties. The axis of this buried valley system is within a few miles of the southwestern edge of the Kickapoo Indian reservation. Shown on the map as dots are the public water-supply well locations taken from the WWC-5 records of water-well completion. The numbers next to the dots indicate the number of wells at each location. Shown by a dashed line also is the trend of a glacial outwash deposit in Brown County taken from Bayne and Schowe (1967).
