Shallow Gas

 

   
  Storage tank for natural gas at the Northern Hotel in Edgeley, LaMoure County, North Dakota around 1920. This tank was once used to collect gas from an artesian well in the area. The gas was used to light the hotel (from Hard, 1920).   The author conducting shallow gas field screening on a shallow, ground-water observation well located in Burleigh County, North Dakota.
