Project Overview

The goal of this project is to provide drilling services for the Sentinel Lakes Groundwater/Surface Water Interaction Network. The three new wells will be used for monitoring the interaction between groundwater and surface water in Lakes Shaokatan and Bear Head. Groundwater/lake water interactions are not well understood, and in order to produce accurate and useful Total Maximum Daily Load watershed investigations and impairment remediations, the MPCA must understand how groundwater affects lake water quality.
