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 Iowa and Minnesota book 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.

Nitrogen, in the form of nitrate and ammonia, and dissolved phosphorus were detected in more than 65 percent of ground-water samples.

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 deposits lie close to the land surface, and are generally less than feet thick. Thus, alluvial aquifers are highly.
