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.

Evaluating Pollution Potential of Land-Based Waste Disposal Santa Clara County, California -- An Application of Earth-Science Data for Planning

Description: From introduction: As a result of recently initiated programs such as the San Francisco Bay Region Environment and Resources Planning Study, planners in the San Francisco Bay region are becoming increasingly aware of the types and possible uses earth-science data. These data encompasses a wide spectrum of disciplines including hydrology, topography, geology, geomorphology, and seismology. If properly integrated with the planner's competence in demography, sociology, economics, and other fields, earth-science data can be invaluable for evaluating and controlling many critical environment problems in urban areas.

Hydrologic-Information Needs for Oil-Shale Development, Northwestern Colorado

Description: From purpose: The purpose of this report is to summarize existing hydrologic information in the Piceance basin, to describe types of needed information, to suggest methods of obtaining needed information, and to outline standards for collection. The report also will provide guidance for comprehensive integrated hydrologic studies that will be necessary for water-resource planning in oil-shale development. These studies should provide hydrologic understanding that will benefit all aspects of water-resource and oil-shale development in the region.

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.

Potential Hydrologic Impacts of a Tar-Sand Industry in 11 Special Tar Sand Areas in Eastern Utah

Description: From purpose and scope: This report summarizes the hydrology in and near the 11 Special Tar Sand Areas which were designated by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. The 11 areas are in eastern Utah where normal annual precipitation generally ranges from less than 6 to about 20 inches and runoff is minimal.

A Method for Estimating Ground-Water Return Flow to the Lower Colorado River in the Yuma Area, Arizona and California

Description: Purpose and scope: The purpose of this study was to develop a method for estimating the amount of subsurface return flow to the Colorado River in the Yuma area. This report presents a method that permits an approximate accounting of ground-water return flow from each side of the Colorado River in Yuma reach. The method presented in this report was developed specifically for application in the Yuma area. The validity of the assumptions inherent in the method was evaluated on the basis of the local hydrologic system. The applicability of the method to other hydrologic systems is not addressed in this report.

U.S. Geological Survey Research in Radioactive Waste Disposal--Fiscal Year 1981

Description: Abstract: The report summarizes progress on geologic and hydrologic research related to the disposal of radioactive wastes. The research is described according to whether it is related most directly to (1) high-level and transuranic wastes; (2) low-level wastes, or (3) uranium mill tailings. Included is research applicable to the identification and geohydrologic characterization of waste-disposal sites, to investigations of specific sites where wastes have been stored, and to studies of regions or environments where waste-disposal sites might be located. A significant part of the activity is concerned with techniques and methods for characterizing disposal sites and studies of geologic and hydrologic processes related to the transport and (or) retention of waste radionuclides.
