Abstract:Sandstone aquifers in Illinois have been important sources of water for municipalities and industries since the mid-1800s, and remain important in Will, Kendall, Kane, and McHenry Counties (Figure 1a). Long-term withdrawals have resulted in declining groundwater levels (also known as heads), with the greatest declines of over 900 feet in Will County, locally exceeding 1,100 feet when wells are pumping.
