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.

1:750,000-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.

1:250,000-scale geology of the Dry Valley Hydrographic Area, Nevada and California

This dataset consists of digital geologic data for the Dry Valley Hydrographic area, Nevada and California. It was compiled from individual 1:250,000-scale geologic data for Washoe County, Nevada, 1:62,500-scale geologic data for the Chilcoot and Doyle 15' quadrangles in California and the results of field mapping within the study area in 2004.

Willamette River Bathymetric Survey

U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) collected bathymetric data from the main stem Willamette River in March of 2002. These cross-sectional and longitudinal profile data were important in filling a large data gap and were instrumental in the creation of a representative model grid for the Willamette River.
