Abstract

Most of the information in this atlas pertains to the ground-water resources of the basin. The surface-water resources, climate, and geohydrologic framework have been described in considerable detail by Iorns and others (1964, 1965).

The maps in this atlas are highly generalized, and are intended to provide the reader with only a general understanding of the geology, ground-water conditions, and chemical quality of the water in the basin as a whole. In most instances, the availability, depth to, and chemical quality of ground water at a given well site can be determined only by special investigations. Only previously collected data were used to compile the maps in this atlas. More detailed information for specific parts of the basin can be found in the reports and maps in the list of references.
