Groundwater within St. Croix County
Groundwater is the sole source of residential water supply in
St. Croix County.
82% of groundwater from within the County, comes from recharge.
The primary aquifer where water is withdrawn is the Prairie du Chien.
The Prairie du Chien is carbonate rock known as dolomite. This
carbonate rock is highly soluble and can led to the formation of
cavities, caves, sinkholes and large fractures (karst).
Groundwater in a karst aquifer can flow rapidly over hundreds to
thousands of feet per day.
