Description:This is a comprehensive report on groundwater resources in the following northwestern Pennsylvania counties: Armstrong, Beaver, Clarion, Crawford, Erie, Forest, Indiana, Jefferson, Lawrence, Mercer, Venango, and Warren. The northwest half of the area was glaciated, and glacial deposits are the most important source of groundwater in the report area. The major text topics include an introduction to the report and the region, climate, geomorphology, geology, groundwater, and descriptions by county. The section on counties makes up the bulk of the report. For each county, the geology, groundwater conditions, and water quality are discussed, and tables show data on public water supplies and drilled wells. A full-color, 1:380,160-scale bedrock geologic map that also shows glacial borders is part of the report.
