Groundwater-Flow Model for the Treasure Valley and Surrounding Area

Science Center Objects

in partnership with the Idaho Department of Water Resources (IDWR) and the Idaho Water Resource Board (IWRB), we are developing a numerical groundwater-flow model of the Treasure Valley and surrounding area. Resource managers will use the model to simulate potential human and climatic effects on groundwater for water-supply planning and management.

As a prelude to developing the groundwater-flow model, we developed an updated hydrogeologic framework model of the aquifer system using information collected during the last two decades, as well as new data collected for this study. Please click the Publications tab above to access the hydrogeologic framework report. For the framework model, model animation, and well data, please click the Data and Tools tab.
