Relation of the deep and shallow artesian aquifers near Lynndyl, Utah

Ground water occurs in several aquifers in the vicinity of Lynndyl, Utah. There are one shallow perched water-table aquifer and at least two artisan aquifers. The perched aquifer is not related to the artisan aquifers and, because it is relatively unimportant, is not discussed here. Pumping tests made during the investigation show also that the...

Estimated use of water in the United States, 1960

The estimated overage withdrawal use of water in the United States during 1960 was almost 270,000 mgd (million gallons per day), exclusive of water used to develop water power. This estimated use amounts to about 1,500 gpd (galIons per day) per capita. An additional 2,000,000 mgd were used to develop waterpower.Withdrawal use of water requires...

Salinity and hydrology of closed lakes

Lakes without outlets, called closed lakes, are exclusively features of the arid and semiarid zones where annual evaporation exceeds rainfall. The number of closed lakes increases with aridity, so there are relatively few perennial closed lakes, but "dry" lakes that rarely contain water are numerous.Closed lakes fluctuate in level to a much...

Water resources of the Raft River basin, Idaho-Utah

Much arable land in the Raft River basin of Idaho lacks water for irrigation, and the potentially irrigable acreage far exceeds the amount that could be irrigated with the estimated total supply of water. Therefore, the amount of uncommitted water that could be intercepted and used within the basin is the limiting factor in further development of...
