The report presents an analysis of information on the Madison and associated water bearing strata underlying portions of Eastern Wyoming and Montana. The analyses indicates that there may be a potential for developing the deep ground water resource as a supply for coal conversion facilities. Maps are included which provide data on: (1) Depth to the water bearing strata; (2) the thickness of the Madison and associated water bearing strata; (3) data on the total dissolved solids content of the water; and (4) the elevation to which water may rise in cased wells. An analysis of cost per acre foot is presented on nine locations corresponding to siting of power plants and synthetic natural gas conversion plants. Further research needs are listed.
