Hydrologic Evaluation of the Arikaree Formation Near Lusk, Niobrara and Goshen Counties, Wyoming

Description: From purpose and scope: The purposes of this investigation are (1) to define the ground-water system in the Arikaree Formation, (2) to determine the hydrologic cause-and-effect relationships resulting from the current ground-water development, and (3) to provide a means of indicating the hydrologic effect of future ground-water development.

Preliminary Digital Model of Ground-Water Flow in the Madison Group, Powder River Basin and Adjacent Areas, Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Nebraska

Description: Abstract: A digital simulation model was used to analyze regional ground-water flow in the Madison Group aquifer in the Powder River Basin and adjacent areas. Most recharge to the aquifer originates in or near the outcrop areas of the Madison in the Bighorn Mountains and Black Hills , and most discharge occurs through springs and wells. Results from the model calculations indicate that the total flow through the aquifer in the modeled areas was approximately 200 cubic feet per second (5.7 cubic metres per second). The aquifer can probably sustain increased ground-water withdrawals probably would significantly lower the potentiometric surface in the Madison aquifer in a large part of the basin. The digital model could better predict the effects of withdrawals if more accurate estimates of the storage coefficient, transmissivity, and leakance could be obtained.
