Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Water quality of 21 private wells in the karst area of southeastern Minnesota was studied from Feb. 1977 to May 1979. The wells were located within a one-township area and were chosen for study following a questionnaire survey by type of construction and aquifer in which they were completed. Thirteen routine and six runoff samples were collected from each well during the study and were examined for 18 biological, physical and chemical parameters. The parameters measured in samples from wells in the Galena Formation had the most variation with total coliform and nitrate nitrogen concentrations.-from STAR, 21(18), 1983
