Cloudburst floods in Utah, 1850-1938, with a chapter on physiographic features

Five years after the first settlement was made in Utah, at Salt Lake City in 1847, it became manifest to the settlers both there and at Manti that "cloudbursts" were of common occurrence in this region. Other settlements were made and gradually expanded on the steep alluvial fans of the mountain streams, and reports of cloudburst storms and their...

Geology and ground-water resources of Cedar City and Parowan Valleys, Iron County, Utah

Cedar City Valley and Parowan Valley are situated in the eastern part of Iron County, in southwestern Utah. Both valleys are traversed by United States Highway 91, which skirts the west base of the High Plateaus of Utah. The sparse population of the valleys is chiefly dependent upon agricultural products for its livelihood. The climate of the...

The Ogden Valley artesian reservoir

Ogden Valley, in Weber County, Utah, contains an artesian reservoir from which the city of Ogden obtains all except a small part of its municipal water supply. A detailed investigation of the ground-water resources of Ogden Valley, and particularly of this artesian reservoir, was made by the Geological Survey, United States Department of the...

Underground leakage from artesian wells in the Flowell area, near Fillmore, Utah

Some of the artesian wells in the Flowell area have a continuous flow of water up around the outside of the casing, others seem to be in this condition only when they are capped and have no surface flow from the casing. During recent years a few of the well casings have been perforated at several depths in an effort to increase the flow. Some of...

Summary of records of surface waters at base stations in Colorado River Basin, 1891-1938

Collection by the Geological Survey of records of stream flow in the Colorado River Basin was begun in August 1889, when three gaging stations were established in Arizona, on' the Gila, Salt, and Verde Rivers. In 1894-95 the work was extended to include 15 gaging stations, on tributary streams at points in the basin where irrigation development...

Cooperative stream measurement work in Utah: A part of Chapter 6 of Twenty-third biennial report of the State Engineer to the governor of Utah: 1940-1942

As early as 1888 the United States Geological Survey began measuring the discharge of the principal rivers of the Western States, with a view to making a continuous inventory of this resource and its utilization for the greatest public good. Until 1905 this work was done in cooperation with the State through the state engineer’s office. Stream-...

Maximum discharges at stream-measurement stations through December 31, 1937, with a supplement including additions and changes through September 30, 1938

This report is a compilation of the highest known discharges at most gaging stations in the United States and at several places on boundary streams in Canada and Mexico. In the design and operation of a variety of engineering works on rivers, such as dams, spillways, bridges, dikes, and floodways, it is important to know the flood flows for which...
