The Power Politics of Hells Canyon

Description: This study examines the controversy regarding Hells Canyon on the Snake River, North America's deepest gorge. Throughout the 1950s, federal and private electric power proponents wrangled over who would harness the canyon's potential for generating hydroelectricity. After a decade of debate, the privately-owned Idaho Power Company won the right to build three small dams in the canyon versus one large public power structure. The thesis concludes that private development of Hells Canyon led to incomplete resource development. Further, support of private development led to extensive Republican electoral losses in the Pacific Northwest during the 1950s.

National Uranium Resource Evaluation: Pocatello Quadrangle, Idaho

Description: From Introduction: "The Pocatello 1º x 2º Quadrangle, Idaho (Fig. 1), was evaluated to identify geologic environments and to delineate areas that exhibit characteristics favorable for the occurrence of uranium deposits. Geologic environments were evaluated primarily on the basis of surface investigations, because only limited subsurface data were available."

National Uranium Resource Evaluation: Wells Quadrangle, Nevada, Idaho and Utah

Description: From Purpose and Scope: "The Wells 2º Quadrangle, Nevada, Utah, and Idaho (Fig. 1), was evaluated to identify and delineate areas and geologic environments that exhibit characteristics favorable for the occurrence of uranium deposits. All geologic environments in the quadrangle were evaluated to a depth of 1500 m (5,000 ft) using all available surface and subsurface data."

Uranium Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance of the Dubois NTMS quadrangle, Idaho/Montana, Including Concentrations of Forty-Five Additional Elements

Description: This report presents uranium and other elemental data resulting from the Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance (HSSR) of the Dubois NTMS quadrangle in Idaho and Montana. Totals of 1024 water samples and 1600 sediment samples were collected from 1669 locations in the Dubois quadrangle. Water samples were taken at streams, springs, and wells; sediment samples were collected from streams and springs.

An Evaluation of Water-Quality Data Obtained at Four Streamflow Daily-Record Stations in Idaho

Description: From introduction: This study is limited to four U.S. Geological Survey stream-flow stations located in Idaho (figure 1). The 6 to 22 years of stations were assembled and evaluated through use of computer techniques for data plotting and regression analysis developed by Steele (1972). Objectives of this evaluation were were (1) to show which parameters were highly correlative with the levels of specific conductance and(or) discharge and (2) to see if any changes in overall chemical character of the stream had occurred over the long term.
