The scale of these data is 1:500,000.
These data are appropriate for use in regional thematic analysis. The data are not appropriate as a geodetic, legal or engineering base. The datasets were not and are not intended as a substitute for surveyed locations, such as can be determined by a registered Public Land Surveyor. Although useful in a GIS, the data have no legal basis in the definition of boundaries or property lines.
The source coverage (edition 2.0) was entirely reconstructed from the source hand-drafted map, making the previous version (coverage edition 1.0) obsolete. This edition retains the edition 2.0 data.
Some information used to compile this map was obtained from well log data on file at the Illinois State Geological and Water Surveys. A variety of well/boring data were used, including:
water wells oil wells (active and abandoned) gas wells (active and abandoned) Secondary and Tertiary oil recovery wells air injection wells service wells waste disposal wells observation wells (disposal sites) observation wells (water resources) gas storage operational wells water test holes coal test holes mineral test holes structure test holes stratigraphic test holes engineering test holes

Map information is to be used at a scientifically and cartographically appropriate scale, that is, at a scale no greater than indicated on the map or as described in the documentation of the map or map data. Map information is not appropriate for, and is not to be used as, a geodetic, legal, or engineering base. Map information has no legal basis in the definition of boundaries or property lines and is not intended as a substitute for surveyed locations such as can be determined by a registered Public Land Surveyor.
The data do not replace the need for detailed site-specific studies.
There were some areas designated as aquifers on the digital version created by Jerry Miller in 1986 which are not drawn on the work map. After several discussions with authors and others the decision was made to include the areas on this newly digitized version.
The features were imported into the ISGS SDE enterprise database following steps outlined in ISGS procedure GISDB_0009.
CODE - Discriminates polygon on basis of water quality 0 - major sand and gravel aquifer absent 1 - major sand and gravel aquifer present
