      The Rio Grande is the fourth longest river in North America, flowing nearly 2, miles from Colorado to the Gulf of Mexico. In New Mexico it occupies the Rio Grande Valley, where it provides water for habitat, agriculture, and a growing s: 5. Rio Grande Compact The region is affected by the requirements of the Rio Grande Compact among Colorado, New Mexico, and Texas (see Supporting Document H-9). Those requirements allocate a certain amount of the annual native Rio Grande water that flows through the Otowi gage (near the Los Alamos highway) to consumptive use.

      The Rio Grande water resource region is one of 21 major geographic areas, or regions, in the first level of classification used by the United States Geological Survey to divide and sub-divide the United States into successively smaller hydrologic geographic areas contain either the drainage area of a major river, or the combined drainage areas of a series of rivers.

The region averages nine inches of rain per year, and relies on both surface and ground water to support the region’s industry, agriculture, environment and people. Surface-water sources include the Rio Grande, the Rio Jemez, the Rio Puerco and the San Juan-Chama Project. Limited ground-water resources currently.

SUMMARY APPRAISALS OF THE NATION'S GROUND-WATER RESOURCES-RIO GRANDE REGION By 8. WEST and W. BROADHURST ABSTRACT The Rio Grande is an interstate and international stream which begins in high mountains of Colorado, flows across New Mexico, and forms the boundary between Texas and Mexico.

HARRILL GEOLOGICAL SURVEY PROFESSIONAL PAPER G A regional appraisal and discussion of planning the future ground-water development in a region characterized by a semiarid climate and closed-basin drainageCited by: I18 SUMMARY APPRAISALS OF THE NATION'S GROUND-WATER RESOURCES Throughout much of the area of the Appalachian provinces underlain by sedimentary belts of rocks, the fresh ground water is underlain by salty ground water at depths of several hundred to several thou­ sand feet.

PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH GROUND-WATER QUALITYCited by: Only about 2 percent of the total estimated volume of water withdrawn (about million acre-ft, or 7, hm 3) and consumed (about million acre-ft, or 4, hm 3) in the region in came directly from ground-water sources.

Ground-water reservoirs have especial significance in arid and semiarid regions as repositories where water is stored or can be stored with minimum loss by evaporation. Nearly all the ground-water reservoirs of the California Region are in alluvial sediments of valleys and plains that flank the mountain ranges.

Ground water in the region occurs in three broad types of geologic terrane: (1) unconsolidated deposits in the Coastal Plain seaward of the Fall Line; (2) hard, consolidated sedimentary rocks and crystalline igneous and metamorphic rocks in the remainder of the region; and (3) unconsolidated sand, gravel, and other deposits of glacial origin that overlie the older rocks extensively in the glaciated northern.

O2 SUMMARY APPRAISALS OF THE NATION'S GROUND-WATER RESOURCES available in usable quantities. Water-quality problems are those usually amenable to simple treatment. The largely undeveloped ground-water resources in the region will be one of the controlling factors in future economic development.

Industrial expansion and inten­. The water resources of the Hawaii Region, taken as a whole, are far greater than foreseeable future demands on them, but this is not so for the individual islands. Each and every island is independent with respect to water supply, and the occurrence and availability of water vary widely from island to island.

The ground-water resources offer better prospects for supplying additional water. Ground water in the Texas-Gulf Region is a large and important resource that can provide a more significant percentage of the total water supply of the region. Total water requirements within the region are projected to rise sharply from 14 million acre-feet (17 cubic kilometres) in to nearly 26 million acre-feet (32 cubic kilometres) in SUMMARY APPRAISALS OF THE NATION'S GROUND-WATER RESOURCEs­ TEXAS-GULF REGION By E.
