Physical environment and hydrologic characteristics of coal-mining areas in Missouri

Hydrologic information for the north-central and western coal-mining regions of Missouri is needed to define the hydrologic system in these areas of major historic and planned coal development. This report describes the physical setting, climate, coal-mining practices, general hydrologic system, and the current (1980) hydrologie data base in these...

Preliminary report on the hydrogeology of a low-level radioactive waste disposal site near Sheffield, Illinois

The Sheffield low-level radioactive-waste disposal site is located on 20 acres of rolling terrain about 3 miles southwest of Sheffield, Illinois. Twenty-one trenches were constructed and filled with radioactive waste from August 1967 through April 1978. Forty-three test wells were installed by the U.S. Geological Survey on and adjacent to the site...

Ground water resources of Lee County

Approximately 8.0 percent of the water used in Lee County comes from underground sources. It is estimated that the use of ground water in the county currently approaches 2.8 billion gallons per year. For comparison, this amount would provide each resident with 172 gallons of water a day during a year. Actually, few if any households use this much...

Baseline water quality of Iowa's coal region

To assist the Iowa Department of Environmental Quality in determining the effects that coal mining and attendant activities will have on the water quality of Iowa streams, the U.S. Geological Survey collected three sets of water-quality samples (representative of high, average, and low streamflow) in the White Breast, English,aand Cedar Creek...
