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Amounts of water withdrawn and consumptively used for irrigation and other uses on the Snake River Plain were estimated to help deter- mine hydrologic effects of ground- and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...

Water-quality data for the Boise River, Boise to Star, Idaho, January to March 1988

Physical and chemical data were collected at six sites and biological data were collected at five sites on the Boise River between Veterans Memorial Parkway in Boise and Star, Idaho, from January to March 1988. Data were collected to determine the effect of sewage effluent from two Boise wastewater treatment facilities on the water and biological...

Hydrogeology and water quality of areas with persistent ground- water contamination near Blackfoot, Bingham County, Idaho

The Groveland-Collins area near Blackfoot, Idaho, has a history of either periodic or persistent localized groundwater contamination. Water users in the area report offensive smell, metallic taste, rust deposits, and bacteria in water supplies. During 1984 and 1985, data were collected to define regional and local geologic, hydrologic, and...

Compilation of well and ground-water quality data, Groveland-Collins and surrounding areas near Blackfoot, Bingham County, Idaho

Well-construction, geologic, and water level data from 1978 to 1985 were compiled for 163 sites near Blackfoot, Idaho. Groundwater quality data were compiled for 51 sites for the period 1961-83 and for 54 sites for the period 1984-85. Data were collected in support of the hydrologic and water quality components of the U.S. Geological Survey 's...
