ABSTRACT: The geology of Bloomington, Ind., and vicinity has a direct bearing on the community's future. Mineral resources, mostly from limestones, are plentiful around Bloomington and require careful study in relation to urban planning to ensure adequate supplies of raw materials. Water-supply problems are increasingly troublesome in areas not serviced by city water. Drainage and soil conditions in and around Bloomington require that special precautions be taken in sewage disposal, construction, and land development. Recommendations based on geologic factors should be formulated for use in urban development planning for Bloomington.
