Surface Water and Groundwater Hydrology of Borrow-Pit Wetlands and Surrounding Areas of the Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area, Lewisville, Texas

Description: The focus of this study was to characterize the surface water and groundwater hydrology of borrow-pit wetlands located within the borders of the Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area (LLELA), east of the Elm Fork of the Trinity River. The wetlands were excavated into alluvial deposits downstream of the Lewisville Lake Dam. Both surface water and groundwater contribute to the hydro-period of the borrow-pit wetlands. Nearby marshes exhibit characteristics of groundwater discharge. Salinity in groundwater-fed wetlands could affect establishment of vegetation, as suggested from plant surveys. Surface water input from storm events dilutes salinity levels. Management of LLELA wetlands should include long-term evaluation of hydrology and plantings to enhance habitat. Plans for additional wetlands should consider both surface water and groundwater inputs.

Reconnaissance of Surface-Water Resources in the Kobuk River Basin, Alaska, 1979-80

Description: From introduction: This report contains data on physiographic and climatic characteristics of the Kobuk River basin, as well as stream channel hydraulic properties, seasonal quantity and quality of surface waters, floods, channel erosion, and benthic invertebrates. The data show the magnitude and ranges of stream discharge, width, depth, and velocity, of flow that can be expected in late winter and summer periods, and indicate flood and erosion hazards in the basin.

Water Use in Ohio 1975

Description: From introduction: This report summarizes estimates of Ohio water use for 1975. These figures are revisions of data which were compiled by the U.S. Geological Survey in the Circular, "Estimated Water Use in the United States, 1975" (Murray and Reeves, 1976). In that circular, water-use figures were aggregated for the state of Ohio as a whole, and for the U.S. Water Resources Council's Great Lakes and Ohio River hydrologic regions.

Effects of Land Use on Surface-Water Quality in the East Everglades, Dade County, Florida

Description: From purpose and scope: Concern by officials of both Everglades National Park and Dade County about the effects of development of land in the East Everglades for various uses created the need for additional information on the hydrology of this wetland. The hydrology of wetlands is also a major thrust of the U.S. Geological Survey. Because of this mutual interest, the U.S. Geological Survey and Dade County have cooperated in a study of one element of wetland hydrology--the effects that certain land uses have on the surface-water quality (Metropolitan Dade County Planning Department, 1978, p. 49-52).

Sediment Transport and Source Areas of Sediment and Runoff, Big Sandy River Basin, Wyoming

Description: Abstract: A study was conducted for the resolution of sediment source areas in the Big Sandy River basin, southwestern Wyoming. Suspended-sediment and bedload data were collected in order to determine total sediment transport at several locations within the basin. The bedload data were compared to the Einstein bedload function and total load data were compared to the Colby method. The bedload comparison showed a higher estimation of transport rates with Helley-Smith sampler measurements than with the Einstein beadload function. The Colby method yielded higher transport rates at high flows and lower transport rates at low flows than the measured total transport rate. The Big Sandy reservoir acts as a control in the basin. The area upstream of the reservoir was interpreted separately from the area downstream for source-area determination. In the arid plains upstream of the reservoir, the amount of sediment transported increased 98 percent with an increase in runoff of only 1 percent.

Chemical, Physical, and Radiological Quality of Selected Public Water Supplies in Florida, January-May 1979

Description: Abstract: Most public water supplies sampled in Florida meet the National Interim Primary and Proposed Secondary Drinking Water Regulations. This conclusion is based on a water quality reconnaissance of 131 raw and treated public supplies throughout the State during the period January through May 1979. In a few public supplies, primary drinking water regulation maximum contaminant levels were exceeded for mercury, turbidity, and gross alpha particle activity. Secondary drinking water regulations were also occasionally exceeded in some public supplies for such parameters as chloride, pH, color, dissolved solids, iron, and manganese. These parameters, however, are more related to the aesthetic quality of drinking water than to public health aspects.

Reconnaissance of the Geohydrology of the Moab-Monticello Area Western Paradox Basin, Grand and San Juan Counties, Utah

Description: From introduction: The purpose of this report is to define surface-water and ground-water hydrology of the Moab-Monticello area in sufficient detail to be part of the data base to determine the feasibility of storing nuclear waste in salt deposits associated with salt anticlines. The investigation primarily used existing data and reports, with minor supplementation from reconnaissance inventories and measurements.

An Assessment of the Collection and Analysis of Hydrologic Data by Private Contractors for the U.S. Geological Survey

Description: From abstract: During fiscal years 1978 through 1981, the U.S. Geological Survey contracted for the acquisition and analysis of hydrologic data from 104 surface water stations, 26 ground water stations, and 15 precipitation gages as well as for several hundred miscellaneous surface water measurements of flow and water quality. The work was performed in Montana, North Dakota, Wyoming, Utah, New Mexico, and Oklahoma, terminating at the end of the fiscal year 1981. This report is an assessment of this contracting effort from the standpoint of cost and of quality control measures employed to ensure an acceptable product.

Evaluation of the Effects of Lake Audubon on Ground- and Surface-Water Levels in the Lake Nettie Area, Eastern Mclean County, North Dakota

Description: Purpose and scope: The purpose of this investigation is to describe changes in the ground-water levels and levels of surface-water bodies and to ascertain whether those changes can be ascribed to the raising of the level of Lake Audubon, or to the subsequent filling of the McClusky Canal, or both. The changes will be determined by analysis of water-level records obtained from observation wells.
