Hydrogeologic data for selected coal areas, east-central Montana

Open-File Report 80-329



Hydrogeologic data were collected in selected coal areas of east-central Montana to provide a basis for evaluating the effects of future coal development on the groundwater resources. Inventory records for 916 domestic, stock, public supply, commercial, and test wells are tabulated in the report; the data were collected principally from 1975 through 1976. The locations of the wells are shown on a map at a scale of 1:250,000. Lithologic logs are also included for 149 wells. Chemical analyses of water samples from selected wells consist of 167 samples analyzed for major cations and anions and 24 samples analyzed for miscellaneous constituents.
