This report summarizes research conducted by
the Minnesota Geological Survey (MGS) for the
Southeastern Minnesota Water Resources Board
(SMWRB) to provide basic data and technical
interpretations pertinent to the design of wellheadprotection
strategies for nine communities in
southeastern Minnesota (Fig. 1). The study focuses
on the hydrogeologic attributes of Paleozoic
bedrock that supplies these communities with
potable water. The communities, including the
cities of Brownsdale, Cannon Falls, Hayfield,
Hokah, Kasson, Lewiston, Lonsdale, Plainview,
and Preston, were selected by the SMWRB using
criteria supplied by the Minnesota Department of
Health (MDH). A brief addendum to this report
also provides hydraulic conductivity estimates for
the aquifers used by the cities of Eyota and Dodge
Runkel, A.C.; Mossler, J.H..
