Abstract

This is the fifty-fifth in a series of annual reports that describe groundwater conditions in Utah. Reports in this series, published cooperatively by the U.S. Geological Survey and the Utah Department of Natural Resources, Division of Water Rights, and the Utah Department of Environmental Quality, Division of Water Quality, provide data to enable interested parties to maintain awareness of changing groundwater conditions.


This report, like the others in the series, contains information on well construction, groundwater withdrawals from wells, water-level changes, precipitation, streamflow, and chemical quality of water. Information on well construction included in this report refers only to new wells constructed for withdrawal of groundwater. Supplementary data are included in reports of this series only for those years or areas that are important to a discussion of changing groundwater conditions and for which applicable data are available. 

This report includes individual discussions of selected significant areas of groundwater development in the State for calendar year 2017. Most of the reported data were collected by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the Utah Department of Natural Resources, Division of Water Rights, and the Utah Department of Environmental Quality, Division of Water Quality. This report is also available online at https://waterrights.utah.gov/techinfo/wwwpub/GW2018.pdf. Groundwater conditions in Utah for calendar year 2016 are reported in Burden and others (2017) and are available online at https://waterrights.utah.gov/techinfo/wwwpub/GW2017.pdf.
