This report focuses on the surficial and bedrock geology of the Lucerne area of Knox County, Ohio. The surficial geology constitutes large glacial deposits of sand and gravel amongst many assorted layers of clay. The large sand and gravel bodies comprise a very productive buried valley aquifer. The bedrock of the entire region is the Cuyahoga Formation, specifically the Wooster shale and the Black Hand sandstone, which are lateral equivalents of each other. In this region the Black Hand sandstone is the predominant bedrock facies, and it too is a very productive aquifer. The Lucerne area, as well as the county in general, has extensive ground-water resources.
