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...

Report of cooperative stream measurements, U.S. Geological Survey: A part of chapter 9 in Twenty-first biennial report of the State Engineer to the governor of Utah: 1936-1938

Investigations for the surface-water resources of the State have been continued during the biennium under the standard form of co-operative agreement between the U.S. Geological Survey and the State of Utah through their respective agents. The nature, extent, and value of these co-operative investigations are discussed in the State Engineer’s...

Geology and ground-water resources of Ogden Valley, Utah

Ogden Valley is a fault trough bounded on both the east and west by faults that dip toward the middle of the valley. This fault trough contains unconsolidated deposits of clay, sand, and gravel, whose thickness is more than 600 feet. These materials are stream and lake deposits and in places are well sorted and stratified. The lake sediments were...

Thermal springs in the United States

The earliest extensive studies of thermal springs in the United States were made by physicians. In 1831 Dr. John Bell issued a book entitled "Baths and Mineral Waters" in which he listed 21 spring localities. In the edition of his work published in 1855 the number was increased to 181. The earliest report on a geologic study of thermal springs was...

Ground water investigations in Utah to June 30, 1936: A part of Chapter 8 in Twentieth biennial report of the State Engineer to the governor of Utah: 1935-1936

During the past few years of drouth the importance of ground-water supplies has become more fully appreciated. During this time, because of subnormal replenishment of the ground-water reservoirs and the increased withdrawals from wells, the ground-water levels have declined in most developed areas in the State, a condition which has made the well...

Floods in the United States: Magnitude and frequency

From time immemorial floods have transformed beneficent river waters into a menace to humanity. Man's progress toward economic stability has been repeatedly halted or even thrown backward by the interruption of his efforts to make effective use of rivers and of valley lands. This handicap is not imposed by the destructiveness of large rivers alone...
