Water quality modeling results of total phosphorus for the lower Boise River near Parma, Idaho 2002 - 2021

Three water-quality models were generated to estimate total phosphorus (TP) concentrations and loads from 2002 – 2021 in the Boise River near Parma, Idaho. A Weighted Regression on Time Discharge and Season (WRTDS) model and a Weighted Regression on Time Discharge and Season with Kalman filtering (WRTDS-K) model were generated using all observations within the study period to quantify rate of chan

Drilling, construction, geophysical data, and lithologic log for borehole USGS 145

During 2017 and 2018, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Idaho National Laboratory Project Office, in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), drilled and constructed borehole USGS 145 (USGS site 433358113042701) for hydrogeologic data collection and stratigraphic framework analyses. The well is located along the western boundary of the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) just south of hig

Hydrological, Chemical, and Biological Characterization of the Snake River and Associated Tributaries and Irrigation Drains from River Mile 448 to 346, 2022

This dataset includes field hydrologic measurements and laboratory analyses of surface and pore waters, sediments, benthic plants/biofilms, and biota along the Middle Snake River upgradient of the Hells Canyon Complex. The study region for this work focuses on a section of the Snake River heavily utilized for agriculture, with complex systems of irrigation diversion and return drainage, spanning 1

Thalweg determination for three rivers in the Pacific Northwest, USA, 2023

In May 2023, the U.S. Geological Survey provided training for bathymetric data acquisition and processing for the Iraq Ministry of Water Resources. The training included multibeam sonar theory, survey planning, data collection and processing, and dissemination. This data release presents the raw survey data, a digital elevation model (DEM), and a thalweg shapefile for three survey areas in the Pac

Groundwater potentiometric-surface contours and well numbers used to map groundwater potentiometric-surface altitude in 2022 and groundwater-level changes between 1968, 1991, and 2022 in the alluvial aquifer in the Big Lost River Valley, south-central Ida

Groundwater potentiometric-surface contours for spring 2022 (April 4 to 8, 2022) and autumn 2022 (October 30 to November 4, 2022) were created for the alluvial aquifer in Big Lost River Valley. The well numbers and station names used to create the potentiometric-surface contours and groundwater-level change maps are provided in this data release. The location, depth to water, and potentiometric-su

Bathymetric and Topographic Surveys at Select Alaska Highway Bridges, 2023

In July 2023, the U.S. Geological Survey Alaska Science Center (USGS ASC) and the USGS Idaho Water Science Center (IDWSC), in cooperation with Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (AKDOT & PF), completed bathymetric and topographic surveys at four highway bridge structures using multibeam bathymetry and boat-mounted Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR). The National Bridge Inve

Model Archive Summary for acoustic derived suspended-sediment concentration at 13269000 Snake River at Weiser, ID

Model archive summary describing the development of an acoustic derived suspended sediment time series computation model. The model archive summary describes the methods and techniques used to develop the model for the Snake River at Weiser, ID – USGS site ID# 13269000. The model can be used to develop a time series of suspended sediment concentration based on acoustic backscatter and tributary fl

Surrogate regression model data for estimating nitrate concentrations at six springs in Gooding County, south-central Idaho

Endangered Banbury Springs limpet and threatened Bliss Rapids snail populations in springs along the Snake River in southern Gooding County, south-central Idaho, are declining. To protect these species, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) needs to understand what affects the species' habitat such as aquatic vegetation, associated with elevated nitrate concentrations in the springs. In coope

Drilling, construction, geophysical data, and lithologic log for borehole USGS 144

In 2016, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), drilled and constructed borehole USGS 144 (433021112552501) for stratigraphic framework analyses and water quality monitoring at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL), located in southeastern Idaho. Borehole USGS 144 was continuously cored from approximately 4 to 639 ft below land surface (BLS). The

A Harmonized Discharge Record for Select Tributaries to the Lower Boise River, Southwestern Idaho, 1986-2022

To provide a consistent, long-term estimate of discharge from select tributaries to the lower Boise River, two datasets of daily discharge records were harmonized. Differences between a discharge record compiled by the Idaho Department of Water Resources (IDWR) and one compiled by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) were computed, and the IDWR record was adjusted so that median discharge values equa

Drilling, construction, geophysical, water quality, and aquifer test data for well SEP 16, Butte County, Idaho

In 2021 and 2022, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the Idaho Department of Water Resources (IDWR), drilled and constructed well SEP 16 (431900112593601) approximately 6 miles south-southeast of Big Southern Butte in Butte County, Idaho. The purpose of the well installation was to collect geologic, geophysical, and hydrologic data. On July 13, 2022, the USGS Idaho National Lab
