Abstract

Four hydrologic maps of the Price 30 x 60-minute quadrangle, Utah show that the hydrology of the area is extremely variable. Normal annual precipitation ranges from less than 8 to more than 25 inches. Corresponding ranges are less than 0.1 to more than 5 inches for average annual runoff, 0.1 to 3.0 acre-ft/sq mi/yr for sediment yield, less than 200 to more than 6,000 milligrams/L for concentrations of dissolved solids in streamflow, and less than 500 to more than 2,000 milligrams/L for concentrations of dissolved solids in shallow groundwater. Variations in the hydrologic characteristics result from differences in geology, precipitation, soils, vegetative cover, and land use. (USGS)
