Review of waterpower withdrawals in Weiser River Basin, Idaho

The Weiser River basin is primarily agricultural and is supported by extensive irrigation. The Geological Survey has initiated withdrawals, or has made powersite classifications of lands having value for reservoir sites and for waterpower production. These withdrawals have been examined to see if they should continue in force or if it is in the...

Ground water in the Raft River Basin, Idaho, with special reference to irrigation use, 1956-60

In the Raft River basin in south-central Idaho, ground-water withdrawals for irrigation have more than doubled since 1955, when data were compiled for a comprehensive report on the area. The present report summerizes data on the ground-water use and changes in the water regimen during the intervening 5 years. Water levels have declined 10 to...

Ground-water reconnaissance in Round Valley, Custer County, Idaho

Round Valley in central Idaho contains alluvial deposits of Pleistocene and Recent age which yield adequate supplies of ground water for stock and domestic wells. The alluvial deposits are underlain by Challis Volcanics of Oligocene or Early Miocene age and a few wells obtain domestic and stock water from the basalt, iatite, andesite, and rhyolite...

Ground-water reconnaissance of the Sailor Creek area, Owyhee, Elmore, and Twin Falls Counties, Idaho

This reports evaluates the ground-water resources of about 1,000 square miles in the semiarid uplands south of the Snake River between Bruneau River and Salmon Falls Creek. The outcropping rocks are the Idavada Volcanics of Pliocene age, and the Idaho Group of Pliocene and Plieistocene age, consisting of the Banbury Basalt of middle Pliocene age...

Water supply for a fish hatchery site, Clearwater Valley, Idaho

A fish hatchery proposed for the lower Clearwater River basin would require a continuous water supply of 10 to 12 cubic feet per second. Limitations on maximum and minimum temperatures and on turbidity are such that a combination surface-and ground-water supply probably would be required. Six prospective sites were examined with respect to their...

Preliminary report on ground water in the Bonanza Lake area, Power and Blaine counties, Idaho

The investigation in the Bonanza Lake area of northwestern Power and southeastern Blaine Counties was made to determine the direction of ground-water movement and to ascertain the relation of the regional ground-water body to the Snake River. The surface of the area is nearly flat to gently rolling, and slopes to the west. Lake Channel, an...

Ground water of the Columbia Basin

Part of the water that infiltrates from the surface reaches a zone of saturation whence it percolates toward the outlet and thereby is delayed in its course to the sea. This ground water is one form of natural storage which has different degrees of effect on stream flow in different segments of the Columbia River basin. As a whole the Columbia...
