Ground-water quality in alluvial aquifers in the eastern Iowa basins, Iowa and Minnesota by Eric M. Sadorf Download PDF EPUB FB2

The quality of shallow alluvial ground water that is used for domestic supplies in the Wapsipinicon, Cedar, Iowa, and Skunk River Basins (Eastern Iowa Basins) is described.

Water samples from 32 domestic-supply wells were collected from June through July This study of ground-water quality in alluvial aquifers in the Eastern Iowa Basins is part of the U.S.

The alluvial aquifers (fig. 5) are the most frequently used source of ground water in the Eastern Iowa Basins because they are near land surface and can supply large amounts of water. The same properties (shallow depth and permeable material) that make alluvial aquifers excellent sources of water also make the alluvial aquifers susceptible to.

surface to ground water in the shal-low alluvial aquifers but not as readily to most parts of the deeper Silurian-Devonian and Upper Car-bonate bedrock aquifers in the Eastern Iowa Basins.

Nitrogen, in the form of nitrate and ammonia, and dissolved phosphorus were detected in more than 65 percent of ground-water samples. Nitrate. Ground-Water Quality in Alluvial Aquifers in the Eastern Iowa Basins, Iowa and Minnesota Water-Resources Investigations Report By Eric M.

GROUND WATER IN ALLUVIAL CHANNEL DEPOSITS NOBLES COUNTY, MINNESOTA By Ralph F. Norvitch ABSTRACT The alluvial channel deposits described in this report are in Nobles County, Minn., about miles southwest of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Although four municipalities and many farms obtain part or all of their water needs from the alluvium, it.

A huge amount of water exists in the ground below your feet, and people all over the world make great use of it.

But it is only found in usable quantities in certain places underground — aquifers. Read on to understand the concepts of aquifers and how water exists in the ground.

A hole dug at the beach is a great way to illustrate the concept. Water-Quality Differences Between Urban and Agricultural Areas of Alluvial Aquifers in Eastern Iowa and Part of Southern Minnesota, by Kalkhoff, S.J., and Savoca, M.E.,presented at the th Session of the Iowa Academy of Science meeting, ApMason City, Iowa.

Characteristics of Sedimentary Rock Aquifers • Useable quantities of ground water occur in fractures and pore spaces of the rocks. • Limestone and sandstone are easily weathered and can hold large amounts of ground water. • These aquifers yield large quantities of water.

These aquifers are capable of yielding from to more than 2, gallons of water per minute to properly designed and developed wells, and are widely used for municipal water supply and agricultural irrigation. A review of the data collected in the Cedar River basin, Iowa and Minnesota, indicates that atrazine is consistently detected in the main-stem river at concentrations greater than microgram per liter even during periods of extended base flow.

The primary source of atrazine in the river during these periods of base flow is not known. This study is designed to determine. Abstract. The Cedar River alluvial aquifer is the primary source of municipal water in the Cedar Rapids, Iowa, area.

Sincethe U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the City of Cedar Rapids, has investigated the hydrogeology and water quality of the Cedar River alluvial aquifer. The USGS annually monitors groundwater levels in thousands of wells in the United States.

Groundwater level data are collected and stored as either discrete field-water-level measurements or as continuous time-series data from automated recorders. Data from some of the continuous record stations are relayed to USGS offices nationwide through telephone lines or by satellite.

Alluvial aquifers (Fig. 2) consist mainly of sand and gravel de posited by streams and associated with the floodplains and ter races of major valleys. Alluvial deposits lie close to the land surface, and are generally less than feet thick.

Thus, alluvial aquifers are highly.
