Ground water in Pavant Valley

The users of wells for irrigation in Pavant Valley, particularly in the Flowell district, have long been cognizant of their utter dependency upon ground water for livelihood, and were among the first in the State to make an organized effort to conserve supplies by prevention of waste. Since passage of the State ground-water law in 1935, the State...

Cloudburst floods in Utah, 1850-1938, with a chapter on physiographic features

Five years after the first settlement was made in Utah, at Salt Lake City in 1847, it became manifest to the settlers both there and at Manti that "cloudbursts" were of common occurrence in this region. Other settlements were made and gradually expanded on the steep alluvial fans of the mountain streams, and reports of cloudburst storms and their...

Underground leakage from artesian wells in the Flowell area, near Fillmore, Utah

Some of the artesian wells in the Flowell area have a continuous flow of water up around the outside of the casing, others seem to be in this condition only when they are capped and have no surface flow from the casing. During recent years a few of the well casings have been perforated at several depths in an effort to increase the flow. Some of...

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-...
