Salt-Water Movement in the Lower Withlacoochee-Cross-Florida Barge Canal Complex

Description: The intent of the investigation was to determine how salt water from the Gulf moves in the river-canal complex under the influence of various combinations of fresh-water discharge and ocean tide. Information about the extent of inland movement, concentration, frequency of occurrence, and residence times of salt water in the river and canal was sought, particularly during times of farthest upstream movement of the salt water.

Front-Tracking Model for Convective Transport in Flowing Ground Water

Description: Abstract: This report describes a finite-difference numerical model that simulates the convective transport of water or tracer particles through porous media. It can be applied to one- or two-dimensional problems involving either steady-state or transient flow. The model tracks representative water or tracer particles, initially located along specified lines, as they move in response to the ground-water velocity field. Aquifer properties may be both anisotropic and nonhomogeneous. Included in the report is a listing of the program along with input formats and test problem results. The front-tracking model provides a useful first approximation for determining the movement of solutes in an aquifer, particularly in cases where dispersion and dilution is of minor consideration.

Streamflow Losses and Changes in Ground-Water Levels Along the Salt and Gila Rivers Near Phoenix, Arizona--February 1978 to June 1980

Description: Scope: This report summarizes part of the hydrologic data needed to determine the effects of streamflow on ground-water storage. The report includes (1) streamflow data at selected points between the water-conservation reservoirs on the Salt and Verde Rivers and the Gila River as Gillespie Dam, (2) changes in ground-water levels in 169 observation wells from February 1978 to May 1980, (3) an estimate of the streamflow losses along the Salt and Gila Rivers between Granite Reef and Gillespie Dams from March 1978 to June 1980, and (4) the infiltration rates on May, 9, 1979, for the Salt River downstream from Granite Reef Dam. Most of the hydrologic data in this report are available in computer-printout form and may be consulted at U.S. Geological Survey offices in: Federal Building, 301 West Congress Street, Tucson, and Valley Center, Suite 1880, Phoenix. Copies of the data can be obtained at private expense.

Distribution of Selected Chemical Constituents in Water from the Floridian Aquifer, Southwest Florida Water Management District

Description: From introduction: The study is part of a continuing cooperative program with the Southwest Florida Water Management District to define and describe characteristics of the aquifer. Aquifer characteristics determined from the study will provide data necessary for regulatory agencies to more efficiently manage water supply and development. The study area includes 10 counties and parts of 6 other counties within the District.

Hydrology of the Little Androscoggin River Valley Aquifer, Oxford County, Maine

Description: Purpose and scope: To gain a better understanding of the ground-water resource available from this aquifer, the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Maine Geological Survey, Maine Department of Human Services and the Androscoggin Valley Regional Planning Commission (AVRPC), conducted a study from May 1980 through October 1982. The objectives were to: (1) determine the quantity and quality of water available from the Little Androscoggin River valley aquifer; (2) develop a better understanding of how ground-water moves through the aquifer, and (3) analyze effects of imposed stress on the aquifer.

Map Showing Outcrops of Basaltic Rocks of Early Quaternary and Tertiary Age, Basin and Range Province, Southern California

Description: From introduction: This map report is one of a series of geologic and hydrologic maps covering all or parts of States within the Basin and Range province of the western United States. The map reports contain detailed information on subjects that characterize the geohydrology of the province, including the ground-water hydrology, ground-water quality, surface distribution of selected rock types, tectonic conditions, areal geophysics, Pleistocene lakes and marches, and mineral and energy resources This is part of the U.S. Geological Survey's program for geologic and hydrologic evaluation of the province to identify prospective regions for further study relative to isolation of high-level nuclear waste.

Ground Water in Carbonate Rocks and Regolith in the Fairview Area, Tennessee

Description: From abstract: Fourteen test wells drilled in the Fairview area, Tennessee, produce from 3 to 100 gallons per minute and have an average yield of 32 gallons per minute; yields were measured while blowing water from the wells with compressed air. In comparison, the average yield of 134 supply wells reported by drillers is 13 gallons per minute. Specific capacities for three of the test wells ranged from 0.3 to 0.6 gallons per minute per foot of drawdown after 8 hours of pumping at 20 to 47 gallons per minute. Two test wells had specific capacities of 1.1 and 0.4 gallons per minute per foot of drawdown after 72 hours of pumping at 55 and 43 gallons per minute.

The Miocene Aquifer System in Mississippi

Description: From introduction: A large amount of information is available on the aquifers of Mississippi. Reports resulting from various areal studies have described the ground-water resources of the areas concerned, but no reports dealing specifically with statewide occurrence of individual aquifer systems have been prepared previously. A series of "aquifer atlases" was deemed the most effective way to point out the character, the potential, and the extent of development of the aquifers and thereby provide water managers with data needed for efficient utilization of available resources. This report on Miocene aquifer system is the first in the series.

Artificial-Recharge Experiments and Operations on the Southern High Plains of Texas and New Mexico

Description: Abstract: Experiments using highly turbid water from playa lakes for injection into the Ogallala Formation have resulted in greatly decreased yield of the recharge wells. Recharge of ground or surface water of good quality has indicated, however, that injection through wells in an effective method of recharging the aquifer. Water that is slightly turbid can be successfully injected for a period of time, but generally results in constantly declining yields and capacity for recharge. Redevelopment through pumping and surging significantly prolongs the life of recharge wells under some conditions. Surface spreading is little practiced on the High Plains, but locally may be a feasible means of artificial recharge.
