USGS: The purpose of this report is to describe a conceptual model of the Antelope Valley ground-water basin, to describe the development and calibration of a numerical model of ground-water flow, aquifer-system compaction, and land subsidence, and to present results of simulated future pumping scenarios being considered by water managers.

Avra Valley is a large north-trending alluvial basin about 15 mi west of Tucson in Pima and Pinal Counties, Arizona. The climate of Avra Valley is semiarid, and the average annual precipitation ranges from 8 to 12 in.

Two major ephemeral streams, the Santa Cruz River and Brawley Wash, drain the area. These streams and their tributaries provide a source of recharge to an extensive alluvial. Welcome to the U.S.

Geological Survey Water- Resources. The extraction of groundwater can generate land subsidence by causing the compaction of susceptible aquifer systems, typically unconsolidated alluvial or basin-fill aquifer systems comprising aquifers and aquitards.

Various ground-based and remotely sensed methods are used to measure and map subsidence. Many areas of subsidence caused by groundwater pumping have been identified Cited by: where.

Lowering of the land surface of large areas has been a major unintended consequence of groundwater and petroleum withdrawal by humans. Approximat km 2 of land in the United States has been permanently lowered.

The decrease of land-surface elevation, known as land subsidence, typically occurs at rates measured in centimeters per year.

Ground-Water Resources for the Future. Ground water is among the Nation’s most important natural resources. It provides drinking water to urban and rural communities, supports irrigation and industry, sustains the flow of streams and rivers, and maintains riparian and wetland ecosystems.

The U.S. Geological Survey integrated the IT Corporation () model with the ground-water flow model by D'Agnese and others () to develop a transient flow model of the Death Valley regional ground-water flow system (DVRFS) for the Department of Energy in (see "Larger Work Citation", Chapter A, pagesfor details).

A subset of the potential ground-water flow barriers was incorporated into a transient ground-water flow model of the DVRFS (Faunt and others, ).

This model is the most recent in a number of regional-scale models developed by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to support investigations at the Nevada.

Ground-water flow directions and estimation of aquifer hydraulic properties in the lower Great Miami Authors: Karen E. Bossenbroek, Rodney A. Sheets. The conceptual model of the Death Valley regional ground-water flow system used for this study is adapted from the two previous ground-water modeling studies.

The three-dimensional digital hydrogeologic framework model developed for the region also contains elements of both of the hydrogeologic framework models used in the previous investigations.

Tucson, Arizona experiences land subsidence coupled with the depletion of groundwater, a critical water resource for the desert city. To understand the spatiotemporal evolution of land subsidence and its implications for aquifer properties, we examine long time series of surface deformation and head by: The Verde River Valley is situated in the central part of Arizona, primarily in the transition zone between the Colorado Plateau and the Basin and Range physiographic provinces.

The entire river valley, from north of Cottonwood to east of Phoenix, was investigated to ascertain whether a suitable reservoir exists that would be capable of.

Inthe Arizona Department of Water Resources began developing a groundwater flow model for the Prescott Active Management Area in order to assess potential impacts of these various management programs.

This model was seen as the first step in a modeling effort that was to be continually revisited and improved as time and new data warranted. Ground-water Hydrology, Ground-water Resources aquifers generally coincide with the bedrock surface topographic highs in southern Adams County (see fig-ure 21).

Regional ground-water flow for both aquifer types follows the same general direction as the Maumee River and its major tributaries. Ground-water flow inFile Size: 1MB. The hydrologic framework of the Santa Clara Valley in northern California was redefined on the basis of new data and a new hydrologic model.

The regional groundwater flow systems can be subdivided into upper-aquifer and lower-aquifer systems that form a convergent flow system within a basin bounded by mountains and hills on three sides and discharge to pumping wells and the southern San Cited by: 4.

Project Methods It is proposed to build a ground water flow model of the Mullens Creek basin and to couple this flow model with a contaminant transport model of the Perry Canyon to simulate the discharge of contamination since the abandonment of the mine sites.

Because of the very limited data available, the modeling will be conceptual in nature and focus on determining the likelihood of. Managed Aquifer Recharge Integration Potentiality In Arid Climate Conditions In The Jordan Rift Valley Marwan Ghanem Birzeit University, 14, Ramallah – Palestine, [email protected] Abstract The Jordan Rift Valley (JRV) catchments are places of extreme water scarcity and continuing overexploitation of the Plio-Pleistocene aquifer system.

As much as m of land subsidence was observed in in the Houston-Galveston region as a result primarily of inelastic compaction of aquitards in the Chicot and Evangeline aquifers between and The preconsolidation pressure heads for aquitards within these two aquifers were continuously updated in response to lowering groundwater levels, which in turn was caused by continuously Cited by: 1.

Regional Aquifer System Analysis-Michigan Basin (MI ) Recharge Study. PROBLEM: About half of Michigan's population depends on ground water as a source of domestic and public supply.

The potential for ground-water development in large areas of the Lower Peninsula, however, is not well defined. This digital geologic and tectonic database of the Death Valley ground-water model area, as well as its accompanying geophysical maps, are compiled atscale.

The map compilation presents new polygon, line, and point vector data for the Death Valley region. The map area is enclosed within a 3 degree X 3 degree area along the border of southern Nevada and southeastern California.

Ten sites were recommended for more detailed analysis and eventual drilling in the northern Sinai, and nine sites in southern Sinai. The southern part of the Eastern Desert showed strong structural control on drainage development, and therefore offers high potential for large ground water reserves in.

Mexico City relies on groundwater for most of its domestic supply. Over the years, intensive pumping has led to significant drawdowns and, subsequently, to severe land subsidence.

Tensile cracks have also developed or reactivated as a result. All such processes cause damage to urban infrastructure, increasing the risk of spills and favoring contaminant propagation into the by: Ground Water Mapping Ground water mapping is a method of assessing and recording the results of subsurface hydrological investigations.

The first step in developing a ground water mapping protocol is to establish the purpose of the assessment followed by the formulation of a conceptual model of the ground water flow system.
