Groundwater Resources Application

Nate Kabatabout 2 years ago
MNDNR has been working to complete County Geologic Atlases for all Counties in the state of Minnesota to evaluate the bedrock geology and aquifer availability. Although not all County projects have started, complete atlases for all Counties in the Metro are available. Separately, but related, the Met Council has completed the Metro Model 3 which is a regional model used to assess the impacts of possible water management scenarios on projected groundwater levels based on land use changes, population growth, and water demand changes. This data could be combined into a web-based mapping interface to enable users to explore the groundwater resources available in their community and to understand the impacts of groundwater use on the future availability of this resource. The webmap could be used as an educational tool for a topic that is currently at the forefront of public conversation - drinking water supply - with White Bear Lake being an example.
