Water Resources Development Act (WRDA): Corps of Engineers Project Authorization Issues

Description: WRDA is the main legislative vehicle for Corps civil works authorizations. This report considers the current status of WRDA and major issues shaping WRDA consideration in the 110th Congress, including changes to Corps project development practices and policies, coastal Louisiana wetlands restoration activities, Upper Mississippi River Illinois Waterway (UMR-IWW) investments, and Everglades restoration projects.

Occurrence, Quality, and Use of Ground Water in Orcas, San Juan, Lopez, and Shaw Islands, San Juan County, Washington

Description: From purpose and scope: The report has been designed in a format that will provide basic information to groups that are responsible for the planning and administration of water resources in the county (San Juan County), and to individuals as a guide in evaluating local ground-water conditions.

Streamflow Losses Along the Balcones Fault Zone, Nueces River Basin, Texas

Description: From purpose and scope: The overall purpose of the investigation was to provide information useful for designing recharge reservoirs above the Balcones Fault Zone and for managing these reservoirs for efficient and effective use of the ground- and surface-water resources. Major objectives were to define the distribution of streamflow losses along the streams, to quantify the natural losses, and to determine the influence of various hydrologic conditions such as antecedent conditions, ground-water levels, and flow regimes on recharge.

Water Resources of Hanson and Davison Counties, South Dakota

Description: From introduction: In July 1977, the South Dakota Geological Survey and the U.S. Geological Survey began a 4-year study to evaluate the water resources and geology of Hanson and Davison Counties. The purpose of this report is to provide hydrogeologic information for future water development and planning in the counties. This study is part of an evaluation of the water resources and geology of eastern South Dakota (fig. 1).

The Southern Hills Regional Aquifer System of Southeastern Louisiana and Southwestern Mississippi

Description: From purpose and scope: The purposes of the investigation were to develop from available information (1) a description of the regional aquifer system serving as a public supply in the Capital Area Ground Water Conservation Commission district, the Florida Parishes of southwestern Mississippi; and (2) to discuss potential alternative sources of freshwater.

Water Resources of the North Coast Limestone Area, Puerto Rico

Description: From introduction: The North Coast Limestone area is one of the two most important ground-water provinces of Puerto Rico--the other being the South Coast Alluvial aquifer. The investigation of the water resources of the South Coast has progressed to the point that at this time (mid-1971) an electric-analog model of the area is being prepared. The hydrology of the North Coast Limestones, however, was never investigated as a whole before this investigation, and, therefore, this study was designed to assess the most important hydrolic features of the area.

Geologic Reconnaissance of an Extensive Clay Unit in North-Central Suffolk County, Long Island, New York

Description: Purpose and scope: This report presents results from an evaluation of geologic data collected and compiled as part of a continuing investigation and appraisal of hydrologic conditions in Suffolk County. The investigation is part of a cooperative program of water-resources studies made by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the Suffolk County Water Authority and the Suffolk County Department of Health Services.

Wetland Issues

Description: Instead of a single comprehensive federal wetland protection law, multiple laws provide varying levels of protection in different forms: the permit program authorized in §404 in the Clean Water Act; programs for agricultural wetlands; laws that protect specific sites; and laws that protect wetlands which perform certain functions. Many protection advocates view these laws and their implementation as inadequate or uncoordinated. Others, who advocate the rights of property owners and development interests, by contrast, characterize these efforts, especially the §404 permit program, as too intrusive. Numerous state and local wetland programs add to the complexity of the protection effort.
