"The maps, with accompanying text and tables, describe characteristics such as geologic materials, thickness of confining units, aquifer thickness, static water levels, well yield, typical well depths, and depth to the aquifer resource. The counties within the northern Basin Studies were adapted from that series to complete statewide coverage in a uniform style. The basin study aquifer system names are unique and are described on those county map adaptations, and in more detail within the cited publication. All of the unconsolidated mapping is intended for use at a scale of 1:48,000 or smaller."

This data set was compiled by IDNR DOW and Indiana University, Indiana Geological Survey, using data believed to be accurate; however, a degree of error is inherent in all data. This product is distributed "AS-IS" without warranties of any kind, either expressed or implied, including but not limited to warranties of suitability of a particular purpose or use. No attempt has been made in either the designed format or production of these data to define the limits or jurisdiction of any federal, state, or local government.
These data are intended for use only at the published scale or smaller and are for reference purposes only. They are not to be construed as a legal document or survey instrument. A detailed on-the-ground survey and historical analysis of asingle site may differ from this data. It is not recommended that these data be used for purposes other than general estimates of aquifer characteristics and groundwater availability. Aquifer conditions at a specific site may vary considerably from typical conditions described for the aquifer system. It is requested that the Indiana Geological Survey be cited in any products generated from this data.

Water Resource Availability in the Lake Michigan Region, Indiana (1994);
and Water Resource Availability in the Maumee River Basin, Indiana (1996).
The remaining counties and portions thereof were mapped under the Aquifer Systems Mapping (1:48,000) project (2003-2011). The accuracy of the attributes for both the northern Basin Study counties and the Aquifer Systems Mapping (1:48,000) project is not known. The accuracy of the reported aquifer characteristics is not intended to represent site-specific conditions, but to identify types of aquifers and typical extents of sand and gravel units likely to contain and produce groundwater. The thickness ranges and potential aquifer yield ranges are estimates of regional aquifer characteristics.
