Abstract:This study reports the effects of substituting water from Lake Michigan for groundwater withdrawals. It describes the results of a digital computer model used to predict future ground-water levels based on anticipated pumping schedules. The study area is 148 miles wide and 148 miles long, spanning northeastern Illinois and southeastern Wisconsin. The model focuses primarily on the "Chicago region" which consists of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, and a portion of Will and Grundy Counties, all in northeastern Illinois.
