1:1,000,000-scale estimated outer extent of areas of groundwater discharge as evapotranspiration for the Great Basin carbonate and alluvial aquifer system of Nevada, Utah, and parts of adjacent states

This dataset was created in support of a study focusing on groundwater resources in the Great Basin carbonate and alluvial aquifer system (GBCAAS). The GBCAAS is a complex aquifer system comprised of both unconsolidated and bedrock formations covering an area of approximately 110,000 square miles. The aquifer system is situated in the eastern portion of the Great Basin Province of the western US.

1:1,000,000-scale potentiometric contours and control points for the Great Basin carbonate and alluvial aquifer system of Nevada, Utah, and parts of adjacent states

This dataset consists of potentiometric contours, control points used to guide the creation of the contours, and a grid of 2 square-mile cells used to average the water-level value of selected control points. Control points are based on water-level measurements at well and spring locations from the USGS National Water Information System (NWIS).

Oil and Gas Well locations, Upper Colorado River Basin, 2007

This dataset was used as the basis for estimating land disturbance from oil and gas activity in the UCRB. The dataset is a compilation of five state oil and gas datasets from June of 2007. The intended uses of this data set include, but are not limited to, natural resource modeling, mapping, and visualization applications.

Geospatial database of ground-water altitude and depth-to-ground-water data for Utah, 1971-2000

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the Utah Department of Environmental Quality has developed a geographic database of selected ground-water-level altitude contours and surfaces for Utah. The contour data are derived from studies published by the USGS and the State of Utah.

Hydrographic Areas Within the Basin and Range Carbonate-Rock Aquifer System, White Pine County, Nevada and Adjacent Areas in Nevada and Utah

This data set consists of sub delineations of the hydrographic area (HA) boundaries and polygons drawn at 1:1,000,000 scale for the Great Basin supplemented by information from HA drawn at 1:750,000 scale where necessary. See the process steps for more information.

Depth to ground water contours of hydrographic area 153, Diamond Valley, Nevada

This data set consists of depth to ground water contours for hydrographic-area (HA) 153, Diamond Valley, Nevada. These data represent static ground-water levels measured in the HA during March and April of 2001. These data were created as part of an effort to provide statewide information on water table and depth to ground water for Nevada.

Water-table contours of Nevada

This data set consists of water-table contours for Nevada. These data were created as part of an effort to provide statewide information on water table and depth to ground water for Nevada. The data set was constructed from water-table contours published in 38 reports between 1961 and 2004. Data used to make the contours were collected from 1947 to 2004.

1:750,000-scale static ground-water levels of Nevada

This data set consists of static ground-water levels for the State of Nevada based on a 1974 ground-water map (Rush, 1974) published by the Nevada Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Division of Water Resources, State Engineers Office. These data were digitized from the source as part of an effort to provide statewide information on water table and depth to ground water for Nevada.

1:500,000-scale dissolved solids in ground water in the Basin and Range Province of Nevada

This data set consists of 1:500,000-scale areas of dissolved solids in the Basin and Range Province of Nevada. The sources of this data set are sheets 3 and 4 of a 1984 U.S. Geological Survey Water-Resources Investigation Report (Thompson and Chapell, 1984.)

1:750,000-scale hydrographic areas and basin-wide pumpage, recharge and interbasin flow estimates of Nevada

This data set consists of the administrative hydrographic area (HA) boundaries for Nevada at 1:750,000-scale and estimates of natural recharge, artificial recharge, pumpage, and net ground-water flow for each basin where the information is available.
