Selected hydrologic data, Pavant Valley, Millard County, Utah

Utah Basic-Data Report 5
Prepared in cooperation with the Utah State Engineer



This report is intended to serve two purposes: (1) to make available to the public basic ground-water data useful in planning and studying development of water resources and (2) to supplement an interpretive report that will be published later.

Records were collected during the period 1959-62 by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the Utah State Engineer as a part of the investigation of ground-water conditions in Pavant Valley in Millard County, Utah. The interpretive material will be published in a companion report by Reed W. Mower.

This report is most useful in predicting conditions likely to be found in areas that are being considered as well sites. The person considering the new well can spot the proposed site on plate l and examine the records of nearby wells as shown in the tables. From tables l and 3 he can note the type of material that yields water to wells in the vicinity; from table 1 he can note (1) the depth and diameter of wells in the vicinity and the yield of some of those wells, and (2) the depth to water or the feet of water pressure in the vicinity; from table 2 he can note the historic fluctuations and trends of water levels in the vicinity; from table 4 he can note the chemical quality of the water from wells in the vicinity; and from table l he can find the use made of the well water. If the reader decides from his examination that conditions are favorable, he can place an application to drill a well with the State Engineer. If the State Engineer believes unappropriated water is available, the application may be approved after minimum statutory requirements have been satisfied.

The report is also useful when planning large-scale developments of water supply. This and other uses of the report will be helped by use of the interpretive report upon its release.
