Hydrographs of water levels in observation wells in Idaho, 1982-88

Hydrographs of water levels in 515 observation wells in the statewide monitoring network for the period 1982-88 are compiled for convenient use. The monitoring network is operated by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the Idaho Department of Water Resources, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, and other Federal and State agencies.

Hydrology of the Oakley Fan Area, south-central Idaho

The Oakley Fan area is a broad, crescent-shaped lowland along the southern margin of the Snake River Plain in south-central Idaho. Intensive groundwater development for irrigation has resulted in rapid water-level declines and, as a consequence, designation by the State of four Critical Groundwater Areas. Principal aquifers are in limestone,...

Selected ground-water quality data for the southern part of the Fort Hall Indian Reservation, southeastern Idaho, July 1989

Concentrations of nitrogen compounds were analyzed in groundwater in the southern part of the Fort Hall Indian Reservation, Idaho. The study area included that part of the reservation southeast of American Falls Reservoir and north of the Owl Canal. The scope of the study was limited to inventorying 56 wells and making onsite determinations of...

The hydrothermal system in central Twin Falls County, Idaho

Thermal water in Twin Fall County has been used for space heating, large-scale greenhouse operations, and aquaculture since the mid-1970's. More recently, increased utilization of the thermal water has caused aquifer pressures to decline. Near the city of Twin Falls, water levels in some formerly flowing thermal wells have declined to below land...

Water resources of the upper Big Wood River basin, Idaho

Mean annual water yields, estimated using a water-budget method, for the upper Big Wood River basin above Glendale Road and for Trail Creek, Warm Springs Creek, and East Fork Big Wood River, Idaho were 410,000, 50,000, 60,000 and 50,000 acre-ft, respectively. Yields also were estimated for 1986 and 1987 water years when data were collected for...

Physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of the Boise River from Veterans Memorial Parkway, Boise to Star, Idaho, October 1987 to March 1988

Physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of the Boise River were examined from October 1987 to March 1988 to determine whether trace elements in effluents from two Boise wastewater treatment facilities were detrimental to aquatic communities. Cadmium, chromium, hexavalent chromium, cyanide, lead, nickel, and silver concentrations in the...

Selected water-quality data for the Fort Hall Indian Reservation, southeastern Idaho

This report presents July 1988 water quality data, principally dissolved nitrite plus nitrate (as nitrogen), and depth-to-water measurements for 60 wells in the Fort Hall Indian Reservation north of Pocatello, southeastern Idaho. Nitrogen concentrations ranged from 0.7 to 24 mg/L; the median concentration was 3.1 mg/L. Nitrogen concentrations in...

Solute geochemistry of the Snake River plain regional aquifer system, Idaho and eastern Oregon

Four geochemical approaches were used to determine chemical reactions controlling solute concentrations in the Snake River Plain regional aquifer system: (1) calculation of a solute balance within the aquifer, (2) identification of weathered products in the aquifer frame- work, (3) comparison of thermodynamic mineral saturation indices with...

Water use on the Snake River plain, Idaho and eastern Oregon

Amounts of water withdrawn and consumptively used for irrigation and other uses on the Snake River Plain were estimated to help deter- mine hydrologic effects of ground- and surface-water use. Irrigation is the largest off stream use of water on the plain. Surface-water irriga- tion began in the 1840's and increased rapidly through the early...
