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...

Ground-water geology of the Bruneau-Grand View area, Owyhee County, Idaho

The Bruneau-Grand View area is part of an artesian basin in northern Owyhee County, Idaho. The area described in this report comprises about 600 square miles, largely of undeveloped public domain, much of which is open, or may be opened, for desert-entry filing. Many irrigation-entry applications to the Federal Government are pending, and...

Ground-water possibilities south of the Snake River between Twin Falls and Pocatello, Idaho

The Snake River Plain and tributary valleys south of the Snake River between Twin Falls and Pocatello, Idaho (here called the South Side area), contain about 180,000 acres of irrigated land, of which 145,000 acres is irrigated with surface water and 35,000 is irrigated wholly or partly with ground water. The area also contains more than 200,000...
