Data for and adjusted regional regression models of volume and quality of urban storm-water runoff in Boise and Garden City, Idaho, 1993-94

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requires information on the volume and quality of urban storm-water runoff to apply for a permit to discharge this water into the Boise River under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Program. Concentrations of selected chemical constituents in storm runoff were determined from samples...

Methods to estimate annual mean spring discharge to the Snake River between Milner Dam and King Hill, Idaho

Many individual springs and groups of springs discharge water from volcanic rocks that form the north canyon wall of the Snake River between Milner Dam and King Hill. Previous estimates of annual mean discharge from these springs have been used to understand the hydrology of the eastern part of the Snake River Plain. Four methods that were used in...

Statistical summaries of streamflow data for selected gaging stations in Idaho and western Wyoming through September 1990: volume 2: gaging stations with 5 to 9 years of record or that measure discharge from springs

This volume presents statistical summaries of streamflow data for 76 gaging stations with 5 to 9 years of continuous record, or with records of discharge measurements from springs, through September 1990. The gaging stations are located in Idaho and western Wyoming. Some of the gaging stations at which spring discharge is measured have 10 or more...

Configuration of the water table, 1970 and 1992, and water-table change between 1970 and 1992 in the Boise area, Idaho

A comparison of 1970 and 1992 water-table configuration maps for the Boise area shows that the water table has declined about 10 feet in about 90 percent of the area. Declines exceeded 10 feet in about 50 percent of the area, 20 feet in about 10 percent of the area, and 30 feet in about 5 percent of the area. The largest declines were south of the...

Water-quality assessment of the upper Snake River basin, Idaho and western Wyoming; summary of aquatic biological data for surface water through 1992

The 35,800-square-mile upper Snake River Basin in eastern Idaho and western Wyoming was one of 20 areas selected for water-quality study under the National Water-Quality Assessment Program. As part of the initial phase of the study, data were compiled to describe the current (1992) and historical aquatic biological conditions of surface water in...

Water-quality assessment of the upper Snake River basin, Idaho and western Wyoming; environmental setting, 1980-92

The 35,800-square-mile upper Snake River Basin is one of 20 areas studied as part of the National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Program of the U.S. Geological Survey. Objectives of NAWQA are to study ground- and surface-water quality, biology, and their relations to land-use activities. Major land and water uses that affect water quality...

Bathymetric map of Coeur D'Alene Lake, Idaho

The U.S. Geological Survey investigated nutrient and trace-element enrichment in Coeur d'Alene Lake, northern Idaho, during 1991-92.  The objectives of the investigation were to characterize limnology, quantify hydrologic and nutrient budgets, and develop a nutrient-load/lake-response model.  The model required bathymetric data to...

Analysis of data on nutrients and organic compounds in ground water in the upper Snake River basin, Idaho and western Wyoming, 1980-91

Nutrient and organic compound data from the U.S. Geological Survey and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency STORET data bases provided information for development of a preliminary conceptual model of spatial and temporal ground-water quality in the upper Snake River Basin. Nitrite plus nitrate (as nitrogen; hereafter referred to as nitrate)...

Assessment of selected constituents in surface water of the upper Snake River basin, Idaho and western Wyoming, water years 1975-89

In 1991, a water-quality investigation of the upper Snake River Basin was initiated as part of the U.S. Geological Survey's National Water-Quality Assessment Program. The initial task of the assessment was to compile and analyze available nutrient, suspended sediment, and pesticide data collected in the basin. For analysis of nutrients and...

Effects of well discharges on hydraulic heads in and spring discharges from the Geothermal Aquifer System in the Bruneau area, Owyhee County, southwestern Idaho

Demand for ground water in the 600- square-mile Bruneau study area has increased since 1954 because of agricultural development. Declining flow at Indian Bathtub Spring is adversely affecting a unique species of snail that inhabits the spring. The Bruneau study area is underlain by sedimentary and volcanic rocks that form a regional...
