Water analyses from the laboratory of the United States Geological Survey

This paper contains 203 water analyses, which were made in the chemical laboratory of the United States Geological Survey. Most of these analyses have been published elsewhere, but many of the original documents are out of print, and are therefore obtainable with difficulty. Furthermore, the form of statement given the analyses has varied from...

Some stream waters of the Western United States, with chapters on sediment carried by the Rio Grande and the industrial application of water analyses

A systematic study of the waters likely to be utilized on the Reclamation Service projects was made in order to determine the influence of the salinity of the waters on the growth of vegetation and the effect of suspended matter in silting canals and reservoirs. The work was begun early in 1905, under the direction of Thomas H. Means, engineer,...

Underground water in the valleys of Utah Lake and Jordan River, Utah

The valleys of Utah Lake and Jordan River are situated in north-central Utah, in the extreme eastern part of the Great Basin. The lofty Wasatch Range (Pl. I), the westernmost of the Rocky Mountain system, limits the valleys on the east, and relatively low basin ranges - the Oquirrh, Lake, and East Tintic mountains - determine them on the west. The...
