Digital Model Simulation of the Glacial-Outwash Aquifer at Dayton, Ohio

Description: From introduction: The specific purpose of the digital model study was to develop a better understanding of the aquifer system and to show how it responds to various pumping stresses. The scope of the study was to develop a single-transmissive-layer model that could be used to evaluate the effects proposed ground-water development schemes would have on water levels.

Availability of Water from Limestone and Dolomite Aquifers in Southwest Ohio and the Relation of Water Quality to the Regional Flow System

Description: Abstracts: The largest ground-water supplies from the 150 to 450-foot thick carbonate-rock aquifer in southwest Ohio are available in a 2,800 square-mile area on the crest and eastern flank of the Cincinnati arch. Well production in the high-yield area is mainly from the Newburg zone, a permeable stratum in the lower part of the Bass Island group. A structure contour map on the top of the Lockport Dolomite shows that the Newburg zone conforms to the configuration of the Cincinnati arch. The chemical quality of the water in the consolidated-rock aquifers is intimately related to the regional flow system, and undergoes a progressive change from a calcium bicarbonate-type in recharge areas to a calcium sulfate-type in areas of natural discharge.

A Model for Flow Through a Glacial Outwash Aquifer in Southeast Franklin County, Ohio

Description: Abstract: A glacial outwash aquifer of about 70 square miles in the Scioto River valley southeast of Columbus, Ohio, was modeled as a potentially major source of water. The model was constructed from available hydrologic data: Records of precipitation, well hydrographs, well logs, two ground-water level surveys, and analyses of six aquifer tests. Utilizing this array of data, water levels determined from a series of steady-state simulations of different hydraulic conductivity distributions were calibrated against measured (December 1977) ground-water levels. The simulations that provided the best matches used two hydraulic conductivity distributions: One was an areally varying hydraulic conductivity distribution; the other an areally uniform hydraulic conductivity (40 feet per day) distribution. After these more probable hydraulic conductivity distributions were found, they were utilized in steady state maximal pumping simulations. The maximal well-field yield of these simulations was 20.5 million gallons per day for the areally varying hydraulic conductivity distribution, and 11.3 million gallons per day for the areally uniform hydraulic conductivity. Sensitivity of well yield to changes in well position and streambed leakance changes was investigated also.

Simulations of Non-Steady Flow in a Glacial Outwash Aquifer, Southern Franklin County, Ohio

Description: From introduction: This report is part of an overall study to model the flow and to describe the water-quality characteristics of the glacial outwash aquifer in part of the Scioto River basin. The purpose of this report is to describe the development of a transient-state digital-computer model and the simulated water-level resulting from anticipated withdrawal by up to six new municipal wells.

Water Use in Ohio 1975

Description: From introduction: This report summarizes estimates of Ohio water use for 1975. These figures are revisions of data which were compiled by the U.S. Geological Survey in the Circular, "Estimated Water Use in the United States, 1975" (Murray and Reeves, 1976). In that circular, water-use figures were aggregated for the state of Ohio as a whole, and for the U.S. Water Resources Council's Great Lakes and Ohio River hydrologic regions.

Assessment of Water Quality in Streams Draining Coal-Producing Areas in Ohio

Description: From introduction: In 1975 a project was begun to provide information on several aspects of coal hydrology in Ohio. The first phase was a reconnaissance of water-quality conditions in coal-mining regions. Phase one had two primary objectives; to document the occurrence of certain inorganic and organic constituents in waters of the coal-mining regions and to determine if the concentrations of those constituents were related to coal mining. The second phase of the project was a more detailed study of four basins sampled during the first phase.

Time of Travel of Solutes in Selected Reaches of the Sandusky River Basin, Ohio: 1972 and 1973

Description: Abstract: A time of travel study of a 106-mile (171-kilometer) reach of the Sandusky River and a 39-mile (63-kilometer) reach of Tymochtee Creek was made to determine the time required for water released from Killdeer Reservoir on Tymochtee Creek to reach selected downstream points. In general, two dye sample runs were made through each subreach to define the time-discharge relation for approximating travel times at selected discharges within the measured range, and time-discharge graphs are presented for 38 subreaches. Graphs of dye dispersion and variation in relation to time are given for three selected sampling sites. For estimating travel time and velocities between points in the study reach, tables for selected flow durations are given. Duration curves of daily discharge for four index stations are presented to indicate the low-flow characteristics and for use in shaping downward extensions of the time-discharge curves.

Time of Travel of Solutes in the Tuscarawas River Basin, Ohio August and September, 1974

Description: Abstract: A time-of-travel study was made on a 106-mile reach of the Tuscarawas River to determine average velocity and dispersion into five subreaches, and a fluorescent dye used as a tracer material. At about the 50-percent flow-duration level, time-of-travel of peak concentration was 137 hours.

Limnology of Selected Lakes in Ohio-1975

Description: From abstract: Water-quality reconnaissance by the U.S. Geological Survey and Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, to evaluate the status of Ohio's lakes and reservoirs was begun in 1975 with studies of 17 lakes. Spring and summer data collections for each lake included: profile measurements of temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH, and specific conductance; field and laboratory analyses of physical, biological, chemical (nutrient), and organic characteristics; concentrations of major and minor chemical constituents from composites of the water column; and physical and chemical data from major inflows.

Measurement of the Reaeration Coefficients of the North Fork Licking River at Utica, Ohio by Radioactive Tracers

Description: Abstract: Reaeration coefficients of the North Fork Licking River at Utica, Ohio were measured by the radioactive-tracer method. The tests were conducted on a 2.1-mile reach on September 23 and October 7, 1981, during low-flow conditions. Krypton-85 gas and tritium were the radioactive tracers, which were used in conjunction with rhodamine-WT dye. The reaeration coefficients determined on September 23 were 3.09 days^-1 (subreach 1-2) and 3.32 days^-1 (subreach 2-3). On October 7, the values were 2.04 days^-1 and 2.23 days^-1 respectively.

Landslides in Colluvium

Description: From introduction: This report describes the Delhi Pike area, which is an area of landsliding we believe to be representative of landslides in colluvium throughout the Cincinnati metropolitan area. The area has been the focus of several detailed studies reported in other chapters in this bulletin. The purpose of the report is to describe the physical setting and movement styles of the landslides and, thus, to provide a context for the more narrowly focused chapters that follow.
