This report contains hydrologic data collected in the Salt Lake Valley mainly from through The Salt Lake Valley (pI. 1) is bounded by the Wasatch Range on the east, the Oquirrh Mountains on the west, the Traverse Mountains on the south, and the boundary . Great Salt Lake’s closed basin. Along the Wasatch Front and for most of northwestern Utah, a special circumstance exists where the surface runoff and ground-water components of the hydrologic cycle cannot flow to the ocean, but are limited to Great Salt Lake’s closed basin. The Great Salt Lake, a remnant of Lake Bonneville, diminishes and accumulates a vast quantity of salt. Great Salt Lake information: Pleistocene: Glaciers blanket the Uinta Mountains, the Wasatch Range, and mountains of the Colorado Plateau. Lake Bonneville, a large fresh-water lake, covers many northern and western Utah valleys. This report is the last of 19 hydrologic reconnaissances of the basins in western Utah. The purposes of this series of studies are (1) to analyze available hydrologic data and describe the hydrologic system, (2) to evaluate existing and potential water-resources development, and (3) to identify additional studies that might be needed. Part 1 of this report gives an estimate of recharge and.

Department of the Interior GEOLOGICAL SURVEY SELECTED GROUND-WATER DATA, BONNEVILLE SALT FLATS AND PILOT VALLEY, WESTERN UTAH By Gregory C. Lines UTAH BASIC-DATA RELEASE NO. 30 Prepared in cooperation with the U.S. Bureau of . Conclusions. Areas in the greatest danger for flooding are portions of Layton, Utah and Centerville, Utah, as well as the Salt Lake City International Airport. The increase in development within the year flood line indicates that should another major flood event happen, damages would be higher than in The goal of “No Net Loss” of wetlands has not been met within the Great Salt. Metals enter Little Cottonwood Creek in Salt Lake County, Utah, in drainage water that discharges from inactive mines in the watershed (fig. 1). As part of a study to evaluate the effects of this mine drainage on water quality, a sodium chloride tracer was injected into Little Cottonwood Creek during September , The purpose of the injection was to quantify stream discharge; to.

Notice - The USGS Water Resources Mission Area's priority is to maintain the safety and well-being of our communities, including providing critical situational awareness in times of flooding in all 50 U.S. states and additional territories. Our hydrologic monitoring stations continue to send data in near real-time to NWISWeb, and we are continuing critical water monitoring activities to. The Salt Lake City South ' quadrangle is near the center of Salt Lake Valley and only late Quaternary (late Pleistocene and Holocene) surficial deposits are exposed in the quadrangle. These deposits are mostly alluvial stream deposits related to the Jordan River and its tributaries, alluvial-fan deposits related to filling of Salt Lake.
