Ground water sampling planned for Clay County Minnesota means that water samples from about 90 wells in Clay County will be collected and analyzed for water chemistry this spring by hydrogeologists from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Samples will also be tested to learn how long the water has been underground. The data are being collected for the Clay County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey, the DNR Ecological and Water Resources Division, Clay County, and Moorhead Public Service. DNR staff will contact Clay County residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. The selection of wells will be based on geology, location, well depth, and well construction. The samples will come from wells drawing water from aquifers at varying depths. Owners of wells sampled will receive a report of the laboratory results for their well.
