This report on ground water in the Cimarron River basin was prepared by the Water Resources Division of the U.S. Geological Survey at the request of the U.S. Corps of Engineers, Tulsa District, for inclusion in the Corps' overall report on the water resources of the basin. The report is an updating of the Cimarron Basin part of the report on the Arkansas, White, and Red River basins (Lohman and Burtis, 1953a) and includes more recently published data, as well as unpublished data in the files of the Geological Survey. These data are compiled by district offices of the Geological Survey in each State in cooperation with State and local agencies and with other Federal agencies. No new data were collected as a part of this investigation.
The report is primarily a map presentation, and the text is intended mainly to clarify and supplement the maps and to make them more understandable and usable. The report also presents some of the ground-water problems--both present and potential--and suggests some partial solutions. As the maps and text are of necessity highly generalized, the reader is referred to the more detailed reports for more precise information.
