County Atlases or County Geologic Atlases (CGAs) provide information essential to sustainable management of groundwater resources and provide a broad range of information on county geology, mineral resources (including construction materials), and natural history. CGAs consist of a Part A prepared by the Minnesota Geological Survey that includes geologic and borehole databases and 1:100,000-scale geologic maps, and a Part B prepared by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (MNDNR) that includes maps of water levels in aquifers, direction of groundwater flow, water chemistry, and sensitivity to pollution.
