Water Use in Tennessee, 2010

The water resources in Tennessee are likely to be stressed in the future by factors such as population increase, urban and suburban development, climate change, and other competing demands. Water-resource managers and policy makers will need accurate water-use data for regional water-supply planning including infrastructure investment, conservation, and cost-recovery strategies. Quantifying public

Public-Supply Water Use in the Cumberland River Watershed in 2010 and Projections of Public-Supply Water Use to 2040

Adequate water resources are vital for municipal needs in the Cumberland River watershed. As a result of continuing population growth, moderate to extreme droughts and floods, demands for competing water resources, and aging infrastructure, the evaluation of ongoing water-resources issues has become increasingly important to Federal, State, and local water-resources managers. In order to assist lo

Potentiometric contours for the Nacatoch aquifer of Northeastern and Southwestern Arkansas and the Tokio aquifer of Southwestern Arkansas, 201415

The Nacatoch Sand in northeastern and southwestern Arkansas and the Tokio Formation in southwestern Arkansas are sources of groundwater for agricultural, domestic, industrial, and public use. Water-level altitudes measured in 51 wells completed in the Nacatoch Sand and 42 wells completed in the Tokio Formation during 2014 and 2015 were used to compile potentiometric-surface maps of the two areas.

A Reservoir Morphology Database for the Conterminous United States

The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Reservoir Fisheries Habitat Partnership, combined multiple national databases for the purpose of calculating new morphological metrics not included in the original databases for 3,828 reservoirs. These new metrics include, but are not limited to, shoreline development index, index of basin permanence, and development of volume and other descript

Carbonate geochemistry dataset of the soil and an underlying cave in the Ozark Plateaus, central United States

The nature of carbon (C) cycling in the vadose zone where groundwater is in contact with abundant gas-filled voids is poorly understood. The objective of this study was to trace C cycling in a karst landscape using stable-C isotopes, with emphasis on a shallow groundwater flow path through the soil, to an underlying cave, and to the spring outlet of a cave stream in the Ozark Plateaus of northwest

Flood of August 2016 in Louisiana

Heavy rainfall occurred across Louisiana in August, 2016 as a result of a slow-moving area of low pressure and a high amount of atmospheric moisture. The storm caused major flooding in the southern portions of Louisiana including areas surrounding Baton Rouge and Lafayette. Flooding occurred along the rivers such as the Amite, Comite, Tangipahoa, Tickfaw, Vermilion, and Mermentau. Over 31 inches

Thermoelectric power plant water withdrawals and associated attributes for three Federal datasets in the United States, 2010

This dataset combines three Federal datasets of thermoelectric, non-industrial, power plant water withdrawals and associated plant information for the United States in 2010, excluding Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Historically, thermoelectric water withdrawal has been estimated by the Department of Energy's Energy Information Administration (EIA) through surveys of plant operator-report

Memphis Area Groundwater-Level Network

Groundwater Watch is a supplemental tool to NWISWeb and, as such, is able to provide additional benefits to the groundwater community. NWIS is the authoritative database for USGS groundwater data, and NWISWeb is the public interface for these groundwater data. This is information pertaining to the Memphis Area Groundwater-Level Network.

Altitudes and Thicknesses of Hydrogeologic Units of the Ozark Plateaus Aquifer System in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma

A hydrogeologic framework was constructed to represent the altitudes and thicknesses of hydrogeologic units within the Ozark Plateaus aquifer system (hereinafter referred to as the Ozark system). The Ozark system study area is nearly 70,000 square miles and includes parts of Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma. Nine hydrogeologic units were selected for delineation within the Ozark system and

Groundwater withdrawal rates from the Ozark Plateaus aquifer system, 1900 to 2010

Groundwater is an often overlooked freshwater resource compared to surface water, but groundwater is used widely across the United States, especially during periods of drought. If groundwater models can successfully simulate past conditions, they may be used to evaluate potential future pumping scenarios or climate conditions, thus providing a valuable planning tool for water-resource managers.
