Hydrologic data for the effects of forest cover on base flow of streams in the mountainous interior of Puerto Rico

The U.S Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Puerto Rico Department of Natural and Environmental Resources, completed a study to determine whether a relation exists between the extent of forest cover and the magnitude of base flow at two sets of paired drainage basins in the highlands of the municipalities of Adjuntas and Utuado within the mountainous interior of Puerto Rico. One set of pair

Spatial Data for Sedimentation Survey of Lago Caonillas, Utuado, Puerto Rico, SeptemberNovember 2012

This data release contains spatial data for sedimentation survey of Lago Caonillas, Utuado, Puerto Rico and includes reservoir bottom contours and water depth data. The Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) owns and operates the Lago Caonillas reservoir, and since 1996, the reservoir has become an essential part of the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority (PRASA) North Coast Superaquedu

Time Series Electromagnetic Induction-Log Datasets Collected through the 2014 Water Year in South Florida

Time series electromagnetic-induction log (TSEMIL) datasets are collected from PVC cased or uncased monitoring wells to evaluate changes in water conductivity over time. TSEMIL datasets consist of a series of individual electromagnetic-induction logs collected at a frequency of months or years that have been compiled into a dataset by eliminating small uniform offsets in bulk conductivity between

Dam Failure Analysis for the Lago de Guineo dam, Orocovis, Puerto Rico

The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, completed hydrologic and hydraulic analyses to assess the potential hazard to human life and property associated with the hypothetical failure of the Lago El Guineo Dam. The Lago El Guineo Dam is within the headwaters of the Ro Grande de Manat and impounds a drainage area of about 4.25 square kilometers. The

Spatial Data for the Sedimentation Survey of Lago Lucchetti, Yauco, Puerto Rico, September 2013-May 2014

The U.S. Geological Survey conducted a sedimentation survey of Lago Lucchetti, Yauco, Puerto Rico, in 201314 in cooperation with the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority. This dataset in shapefile format was generated from the survey data. The survey updated previous surveys, conducted in 2000, and provided accurate information regarding reservoir storage capacity and sedimentation rate using

Raw Data from Continuous Resistivity Profiles Collected May 24-25, and July 28, 2011 in Biscayne Bay and a Cooling Canal System, Miami-Dade County, Florida

The salinity of groundwater at the Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) Turkey Point Nuclear Plant in southeastern Florida is being evaluated. The power plant contains a large cooling canal system with warm water; which has salinities elevated above typical, natural surface water in southeastern Florida, circulating within the canals in the uppermost part the highly permeable karst carbonate Biscay

Data, Statistics, and Geographic Information System Files, Pertaining to Mapping of Water Levels in the Biscayne Aquifer, Water Conservation Areas, and Everglades National Park, Miami-Dade County, Florida, 2000-2009 - Scientific data associated with USGS

Statistical analyses and maps representing mean, high, and low water-level conditions in the surface water and groundwater of Miami-Dade County were made by the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Miami-Dade County Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources, to help inform decisions necessary for urban planning and development. Sixteen maps were created that show contours of (1) t

Pressure and flow rate measurements to support hydraulic tomography of the Floridan aquifer system at the North District Wastewater Treatment Plant, Miami-Dade County, Florida

U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with Miami-Dade County, performed a sequential, aquifer stress test from August 15 to October 12, 2011, on the Floridan aquifer system at the North District Wastewater Treatment Plant, in Miami-Dade County, Florida. Miami-Dade County stressed the Floridan aquifer system with four municipal injection wells at the North District Wastewater Treatment Plant. In
