Artificial-Recharge Tests in Upper Black Squirrel Creek Basin, Jimmy Camp Valley, and Fountain Valley, El Paso County, Colorado

Description: Abstract: Nine artificial-recharge pits were excavated in the alluvium in upper Black Squirrel Creek basin, Jimmy Campy Valley, and in the alluvium overlying the Widefield aquifer in Fountain Valley. Each artificial-recharge site was instrumented to measure inflow, stage fluctuations, and water-table fluctuations. Artificial-recharge tests conducted in upper Black Squirrel Creek basin indicated that the average adjusted rates of infiltration for the three sites ranged from 1.6 to 2.4 feet (0.5 to 0.7 meter) per day. Tests conducted in Jimmy Camp Valley indicated that the average adjusted rates of infiltration for the two sites ranged from 3.8 to 24.7 feet (1.2 to 7.5 meters) per day. Tests conducted on the Widefield aquifer indicated that the average adjusted rates of infiltration for four sites ranged from 2.3 to 12.9 feet (0.7 to 3.9 meters) per day.

Analyses of Coals in the United States with Descriptions of Mine and Field Samples Collected between July 1, 1904 and June 30, 1910 Part 2. Descriptions of Samples

Description: From Introduction: "This volume contains the descriptions of the samples whose analyses are published in the preceding volume, Part I of this bulletin. The descriptions have been compiled from the notebooks of the persons who collected the samples, have been condensed from accounts given in published reports of the United States Geological Survey, or have furnished by the collection themselves. Inasmuch as the descriptions represent the work of many persons during a period of six years, and inasmuch as they were recorded under widely differing conditions, they necessarily vary in fullness detail."
