This report summarizes a project by the Minnesota Geological Survey (MGS) to conduct research intended to provide basic geologic data and technical interpretations pertinent to groundwater management strategies for the tribal land of the Shakopee-Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC), and surrounding areas, in Scott County, Minnesota. The major project tasks included production of a number of maps, crosssections,
and 3-dimensional images that depict Paleozoic bedrock and overlying Quaternary strata. An evaluation of the hydrogeologic attributes of the bedrock is also included, with emphasis on the Franconia Formation and Ironton-Galesville sandstones which are of increasing importance to the SMSC as a source of water.
PDF file contains the official report, GIS files containing digital maps and Arcview projects associated with the report, and the a text file that contains a general overview of GIS data data. Submitted as a contract deliverable in 2005.
