Item Number: IJES01

The Logansport quadrangle is located in the north-central portion of Indiana where bedrock units that straddle the Kankakee Arch are buried by up to 400 ft of glacially derived Quaternary sediments. High-purity carbonate from Silurian reefs provides raw materials for construction and manufacturing in the region. The bedrock units between the shales of the New Albany Shale (Devonian-Mississippian) and Maquoketa Group (Ordovician) compose the “Silurian-Devonian carbonate bedrock aquifer.”
