Availability of hydrologic data in San Juan County, New Mexico

January 1, 1994

San Juan County, in the northwestern corner of New Mexico, uses surface water from the San Juan, Animas, and La Plata Rivers as a principal source of water for the county, but the water in these streams is fully appropriated. Ground water is present in San Juan County in several bedrock formations and in the alluvium of the river valleys. This report describes the hydrologic data that have been collected in San Juan County, presents examples of the data, shows the locations of the data-collection sites, and indicates where more complete records may be obtained. This data base should be helpful in assessing the quantity, quality, and availability of the county 's water resources. Information collected at 1,877 water wells, 39 streamflow-gaging stations, and 172 springs is presented. The collection sites and geology are shown on a base map with a scale of 1 inch = 2 miles.
