Abstract:

The region under study is drained by many streams and rivers flowing out of the area. Primary drainage is towards Lake Superior in the north and west and towards Lake Michigan in the south and east. In most of the area, however, drainage is poorly developed and these regions are characterized by numerous ponds, lakes and swampy areas. Water quality in streams is generally good with total dissolved solids content low--no more than about 200 ppm even under low flow conditions, with hardness less than 120 pmm. Surface water resources are not extensively developed at the present time with main uses being for recreation, fishing, hydroelectric power production, and industry. Author
