Floods in Utah, magnitude and frequency

This report presents a procedure for estimating the magnitude and frequency of floods, within the range of the base data, for any site, gaged or ungaged. From the relation of annual floods to the mean annual flood, a composite frequency curve was derived for recurrence intervals of 1.1 to 50 years. For regions of similar hydrologic characteristics...

Inventory of published and unpublished sediment-load data, United States and Puerto Rico, 1950-60

This inventory of published and unpublished sediment-load data contains a list of the sediment-transport measurements in the United States and Puerto Rico during October 1950 to September 1960, made by the agencies associated with the Subcommittee on Sedimentation. Some of the agencies have miscellaneous sediment data, such as single observations...

Stream composition of the conterminous United States

This atlas is comprise of three maps of the conterminous United States which show separately the prevalent dissolved-solids concentrations, prevalent chemical type, and average sediment concentration of rivers. The river-composition data shown on plates 1-3 provide a starting point for evaluating our surface-water resources on a nationwide scale,...

Water-supply possibilities at Capitol Reef National Monument, Utah

A water supply of 50 gpm (gallons per minute) is estimated to be sufficient to supply the present and future water demand at the monument. The Coconino sandstone of Permian age seems to be capable of yielding this quantity to a well between 1,500 and 2,700 feet deep in the vicinity of Fruita. Recharge to this aquifer probably is principally from...

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...
