Abstract

Hydrologic studies in and near the major coal fields of Utah by the U.S. Geological Survey through 1980 are described. The report is intended as a reference for those people dealing with coal-related hydrologic problems. In an annotated bibliography, 47 reports that deal with many components of the hydrologic system are summarized. Most of the reports are interpretive in nature, but some contain only basic data. The reports deal with such varied subjects as the magnitude and frequency of floods, the availability of ground water, and the hydrologic impacts of coal mining. Seven hydrologic studies that are active in 1980 in Utah coal-resource areas are described. That part of the Geological Survey statewide network for monitoring surface water and ground water that is in the vicinity of the major coal fields also is described. (USGS)
