The City of Columbus has purchased two potential well sites, one in southwestern Harrison Township along Big Walnut Creek, and the other further upstream in central Madison Township. The objective of my study is to characterize the hydrogeologic setting of each of these sites. The analysis will be based on well logs of all domestic wells in the area, including those that had to be located in the field due to a drilling date after the 1960's, after the last ODNR map was constructed. The logs were used to construct four cross sections, two for each site, one on either side of each proposed site. The well-log information was also used to construct a composite potentiometricsurface map. Bedrock topography maps were derived from other sources due the shallowness of the area wells. Geologic information was obtained from the area in order to understand the concepts of the buried valleys and what impact this would have on the hydrogeologic resources. Climatic data were also gathered in order to understand the amount of recharge that each area might receive.
