Abstract:This study evaluates the heavily used shallow aquifer system in Will and southern Cook Counties and ascertains its ability to meet the present and future water supply needs of the communities it serves. The hydrogeologic evaluation involves an examination of existing data to determine the aquifer's geologic and hydraulic properties as well as the amount of water withdrawn from the aquifer. New data are used to determine ground-water flow directions, existing aquifer recharge rates, potential yield of the aquifer, and general ground-water quality.
