The research was a comprehensive study of the quantity and quality of groundwater discharged into the Menomonee River System, southeastern Wisconsin. The Menomonee River Watershed comprises three aquifer systems: the deep artesian sandstone, the Niagara dolomite and the glacial aquifers. Groundwater discharge into the river system is supplied mainly by the shallow glacial aquifer, with only a minor component of discharge supplied by the dolomite aquifer. During the 1 year study, groundwater was found to account for 45 to 65% of the non-event flow in the Menomonee River. Discharges from sewage treatment plants and of industrial waste waters supplied the remainder of the non-event flow.
