The type section of the Spring Grove Member is located on the right bank of the Wapsipinicon River (cen. 24, 86N-7W) near Spring Grove Township, Linn County, Iowa.
The Spring Grove Member of the Wapsipinicon Limestone (Stainbrook, 1935, p. 251-252) formerly was the upper part of the Kenwood.
The Spring Grove Member is probably as much as 25 feet thick in subsurface, but it is only 5-10 feet thick in the outcrop area, where it is exposed in the quarries at Milan and Rock Island.
