Description:
This metadata record provides an index to datasets generated by the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area Regional Groundwater Flow Model. The 2005 Minnesota Legislature directed the Metropolitan Council to "carry out planning activities addressing the water supply needs of the metropolitan area" (Minnesota Statutes, Section 473.1565). Specifically the Council is charged with developing a base of technical information for water supply planning decisions and to prepare a metropolitan area master water supply plan. This dataset supports this charge.Links below contain additional information relating to each dataset :1. Regional Groundwater Flow Model Boundary (polygon)2. Areas of Predicted Aquifer Decline Greater than 50% of Available Head (raster):- Drawdown Available Head 2030 Franconia Ironton Galesville - Drawdown Available Head 2050 Franconia Ironton Galesville - Drawdown Available Head 2030 Prairie du Chien Jordan- Drawdown Available Head 2050 Prairie du Chien Jordan3.
