A proposed streamflow-data program for Idaho

A streamflow information system is proposed for Idaho. This proposal resulted from a study in which the basic steps were (1) definition of long-term program goals, (2) examination and evaluation of available data to determine which goals have been achieved, and (3) consideration of alternate programs and techniques for meeting the remaining goals....

Water resources in the Big Lost River Basin, south-central Idaho

The Big Lost River basin occupies about 1,400 square miles in south-central Idaho and drains to the Snake River Plain. The economy in the area is based on irrigation agriculture and stockraising. The basin is underlain by a diverse-assemblage of rocks which range, in age from Precambrian to Holocene. The assemblage is divided into five groups on...

Availability of ground water for large-scale use in the Malad Valley-Bear River areas of southeastern Idaho: an initial assessment

Five areas within the Bear River drainage of southeastern Idaho offer potential for further development of ground water--the valley north of Bear Lake, north of Soda Springs, Gem Valley, Cache Valley in Idaho, and Malad Valley in Idaho. Saturated deposits north of Bear Lake are too fine-textured to yield large quantities to wells; the areas north...

Water resources of the Salmon Falls Creek basin, Idaho-Nevada

The northern part of the Salmon Falls Creek basin, referred to as the Salmon Falls tract, contains a large acreage of good agricultural land, but the surface-water supply is inadequate to develop the area fully. Attempts to develop ground water for irrigation have been successful only locally. Specific capacities of wells drilled for irrigation...

Ground-water aspects of the lower Henrys Fork region, Idaho

The lower Henrys Fork region includes the plains and low benches between Ashton and the junction of Henrys Fork and Snake River in eastern Idaho. The northwestern and western parts of the area are part of the Snake River lava plain. The central part of the area is occupied by alluvial plains of the Snake, Teton, and Falls Rivers, and Henrys Fork....

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...
