Occurrence of strontium in natural water

The regions where the stable strontium content of surface waters is relatively low (less than 0.50 ppm) include the Pacific Northwest, Northeastern United States, and the Central Lowlands, Particularly the Lower Mississippi basin and the Western Gulf Coast area. Moderate concentrations of strontium (0.50 to 1.5 ppm) are found in streams of...

Summary of floods in the United States during 1952

Extensive flooding occurred in the basins of the Missouri and upper Mississippi Rivers and the Red River of the North. Other large floods were confined mainly to the States of Texas, Utah, Nevada, and California. The most intense of the large floods was the September flood in south-central Texas, which resulted from rains ranging from 5 to 26...

Summary of floods in the United States during 1953

Major floods occurred in four areas in the United States during 1953: western Oregon and northwestern California, Louisiana and adjacent States, the Missouri River basin in Montana, and northwestern Iowa.Monetary loss from floods in 1953 was much lower than in any one of the preceding 3 years and was less than half the national annual average as...

A compilation of chemical quality data for ground and surface waters in Utah

An accelerated use of water resulting from a growing population, industrial expansion, and irrigation has brought into focus the importance of the quality as well as the quantity of this natural resource in Utah. As new demands are made on the existing supply, a search goes on for new sources of ground and surface water. These new sources must not...

Phreatophytes

Phreatophytes are plants that depend for their water supply upon ground water that lies within reach of their roots. Although not confined to the arid regions of the Western United States, their occurrence there is more common, more spectacular, and, because of their effect on water supply, more important than it is in humid and subhumid regions....

Estimated use of water in the United States, 1955

The estimated withdrawal use of water in the United States during 1955 was about 740,000 mgd (million gallons per day). Withdrawal use of water requires that it be removed from the ground or diverted from a stream or lake. In this report it is divided into five types: public supplies, rural, irrigation, self-supplied industrial, and waterpower....
