Potentiometric surface contours for the Madison aquifer, Black Hills, South DakotaEntry ID: USGS_ofr00471_mdsnpcon
Abstract: This data set was created as part of the Black Hills Hydrology Study (BHHS).
The BHHS is a long-term investigation that was initiated in 1990 as a
cooperative effort between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the South Dakota
Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), and the West Dakota
Water Development District. West Dakota represents various local and county
cooperators. The purpose of the study is to assess the quantity, quality, and
distribution of surface and ground water in the Black Hills area of western
South Dakota (Driscoll, 1992). The study area includes parts of Butte, Custer,
Fall River, Lawrence, Meade, and Pennington counties in South Dakota.
This data set represents potentiometric surface contours for the Madison
aquifer, Black Hills, South Dakota.
