Abstract

This report contains hydrologic data for wells finished in sandstone and alluvial aquifers in southeastern San Juan County, Utah, and chemical data for water from selected wells in the Navajo aquifer. Temperature, specific conductance, pH, and discharge data from 1989-91 for water from selected wells in all aquifers are also presented.

Data presented in this report were compiled from previously published reports (Goode, 1958; Sumsion, 1975; Avery, 1986; Kimball, 1987; Howells, 1990); data bases of the U.S. Geological Survey, the Navajo Tribe, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the Utah Division of Water Rights, and the Utah Division of Oil, Gas, and Mining; and from information obtained from oil companies in the Greater Aneth Oil Field.

Results of investigations by Avery (1986) during 1982-83 indicated that water from many wells in the Navajo aquifer in the vicinity of the Greater Aneth Oil Field was moderately saline and that in some wells, salinity appeared to increase over time. The purpose of this study is to assess the physical extent and concentration of saline water in the Navajo and other aquifers in this area. The purpose of this report is to present available water-quality data for water from wells in the Navajo aquifer and present records for selected wells in the Navajo and other aquifers.
