Abstract

This report presents results of investigation of ground-water conditions in the Kaiparowits Plateau area of south-central Utah and north-central Arizona (fig. 1). The area is under investigation for development of its large quantities of energy resources, primarily coal. Production and transportation of those energy resources would require attendant development of water resources. The purpose of this study was to determine the availability and quality of ground water in major aquifers in the area - namely aquifers in the Entrada, Navajo, and Wingate Sandstones; emphasis was on the Navajo Sandstone. The study was made by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the Utah Department of Natural Resources, Division of Water Rights. Field work was done intermittently during July through October 1979, and October 1980 through October 1981.
