Carter ABSTRACT The Madison and Minnelusa aquifers are two of the most important aquifers in the Black Hills area because of utilization for water supplies and important influences on surface-water. The Madison and Minnelusa aquifers are two of the most important aquifers in the Black Hills area because of utilization for water supplies and important influences on surface-water resources resulting from large springs and streamflow- loss zones.

In the Minnelusa, removal of anhydrite progresses downdip with continued dissolution of the anhydrite (fig. 7), collapse breccia is formed, breccia pipes extend upwards, and resurgent. The topographically defined Black Hills and adjacent areas (Black Hills area) of Wyoming (fig.

1) are underlain by two regionally important aquifers-the Minnelusa and the Madison. The Minnelusa aquifer is used extensively in the Black Hills area as a source of domestic and livestock water.

The Madison aquifer is an important source of municipal, industrial, agricultural, and domestic water in. Figure 3. Three-dimensional diagram of the aquifers of the Black Hills (view to the northwest) showing major aquifers of the Black Hills (adapted from Carter and others, ).

Carter, Daniel G. Driscoll, and Ghaith R. Hamade. West Dakota represents various local and county cooperators. The purpose of the study was to assess the quantity, quality, and distribution of surface and ground water in the Black Hills area of South Dakota (Driscoll, ).

The study area includes parts of Butte, Custer, Fall River, Lawrence, Meade, and Pennington Counties in South Dakota. The Black Hills area is an important resource center that provides an economic base for western South Dakota through tourism, agriculture, the timber industry, and mineral resources.
