The large Alaskan earthquake of March 27, 1964, affected all the major aquifers in Iowa. The effects included (1) seismic fluctuations of the water level; (2) turbid water; and (3) a permanent change in some water levels. A change in the porosity of the aquifers is postulated as an explanation for the permanent water-level changes.
