Progress report on selected ground-water basins in Utah

This technical publication consists essentially of the interpretation of data collected in connection with a detailed inventory of ground-water pumpage and water-level trends in four irrigation districts in southern Utah. Much of this information was assembled in a preliminary report entitled "Inventory of ground-water pumpage in three irrigation...

The industrial utility of public water supplies in the United States, 1952; Part 2: States west of the Mississippi River

Public water supplies are utilized extensively by industries for processing, cooling, and steam generation. The requirements as to quality of water for each industry are specific, therefore information on the quality or chemical character of the water supply is essential not only in the location of industrial plants but also is an aid in the...

Geology and geography of the Henry Mountains region, Utah

The Henry Mountains region in southeastern Utah is one of the classic areas in geology because of the study made there by Grove Karl Gilbert in 1875 and 1876. His report on the geology of the mountains was the first to recognize that intrusive bodies may deform their host rocks and the first to show clearly the significance of the evenly eroded...

Lake Bonneville: Geology of northern Utah Valley, Utah

Lake Bonneville was a vast Pleistocene lake that covered 20,000 square miles in northwestern Utah and had a maximum depth of about 1,000 feet. It was a body of water comparable in size to modern Lake Michigan.Surveys of the unconsolidated deposits in the Lake Bonneville basin utilize the same methods used in studies of hard rocks, namely:...

Sedimentation in small reservoirs on the San Rafael Swell, Utah

Movement of sediment from upland areas and eventually into main drainages and rivers is by no means through continuous transportation of material from the source to the delta. Instead it consists of a series of intermittent erosional and depositional phases that present a pulsating movement. Hence, sediment carried off upland areas may be...

Hydrologic reconnaissance of the Green River in Utah and Colorado

The Green River, rising in Wyoming and draining high mountains in that state, northeast Utah and northwest Colorado, is a major tributary of the Colorado River. In the late summer, after the snow has melted from these mountains, the flow in the Green River reaches its minimum for the year. At that time a large proportion of the water in the river...
