Update - 08/27/15 - Boundary extent changes to the Pony Gulch aquifer

Update - 7/15/13 - White Shield aquifer portion in Mountrail County was renamed to Sanish Aquifer based on the following report - Water Resources of the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation, West-Central North Dakota , Cates Steven W. and Macek-Rowland , Kathleen M. , Department of the Interior , U.S. Geological Survey , Water-Resources Investigations Report 98-4098 , Bismarck, North Dakota 1998

Updates - 4/30/13 - Boundary extent changes to the Killdeer and Horse Nose Butte aquifers along with the addition of the Lake Ilo aquifer

Updates - 4/23/13 - Typos corrected on the Spiritwood-Stutsman and Spiritwood-Grand Rapids names

In addition, significant boundary changes were also made to the Rosefield and Carrington aquifers (north of Carrington, Foster/Wells counties).

04/10/12 - Two aquifers were named; the Zap Aquifer which is underneath the cities of Zap and Golden Valley, and the Otter Creek Aquifer which is approximately 12 miles southeast of the Zap Aquifer

01/10/2011 - Boundaries on the Central Dakota Aquifer were updated


Summary

The digital coverage of the glacial drift aquifers was initially derived from "Map Showing Glacial Drift Aquifers in Noerth Dakota and Estimated Potential Yields, 1986" and modified reflecting new data collected over the last 20+ years. It is primarily the estimated boundaries of the major glacial-drift aquifers initially described in the county ground-water studies produced by the US Geological Survey in cooperation with the North Dakota State Water Commission and the North Dakota Geological Survey. New updates were developed by the Appropriations division staff of the North Dakota State Water Commission. These aquifers are considered to have the greatest potential for yielding significant quantities of water for municipal, industrial, and agricultural purposes. They underlie an area of about 8,900 square miles. It is estimated that about 66 million acre-feet of water is stored in these aquifers. As a comparison, Lake Sakakawea behind Garrison Dam contains approximately 24 million acre-feet of water when full.
