Abstract

The Wasatch Plateau-Book Cliffs coal-fields area in east-central Utah includes a significant part of the State 's coal resources and is currently (1977) the most active coalmining area in the State. Data gathered by the U.S. Geological Survey are presented as part of a hydrologic reconnaissance in cooperation with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management during the period July 1975-September 1977 as well as selected data for the period 1931-75. Also included are selected data collected by private, State, and other Federal agencies. Types of data include water-level records, logs of selected wells, discharge of springs, wells, and mines, gaged and estimated streamflow, chemical analyses of water from springs, wells, mines, and streams, and laboratory analyses of streambed material and formation samples. The report is intended to make data available to those assessing the water resources that may be affected by coal-mining activities in the Wasatch Plateau-Book Cliffs coal-field are. (Woodard-USGS)
