CHEMICAL QUALITY OF SURFACE WATERS AND SEDIMENTATION IN THE SALINE RIVER BASIN, KANSAS By PAUL R. JORDAN, BLAIR F. JONES, and LESTER R. PETRI ABSTRACT This report gives the results of an investigation of the sediment and dis­ solved minerals that are transported by the Saline River and its by: 5. An investigation of the chemical quality of surface waters and of the sedimentation in the Grand River drainage basin by the U.S. Geological Survey began in The chemical quality of the water was studied to obtain information on the nature and amounts of dissolved solids in the streams and on the suitability of the water for domestic, industrial, and irrigation uses. Sedimentation and Chemical Quality of Surface Water in The Heart River Drainage Basin, North Dakota By M L MADERAK GEOLOGICAL SURVEY WATER-SUPPLY PAPER Prepared as part of a program of the Department of the Interior for development of the Missouri River basin UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, WASHINGTON Cited by: 2. This report gives the results of an investigation of the sediment and dissolved minerals that are transported by the Saline River and its tributaries. The Saline River basin is in western and central Kansas; it is long and narrow and covers 3, square miles of rolling plains, which is broken in some places by escarpments and small areas of badlands.

Third, the direct linkage between upland soil-erosion rates and downstream river-sediment discharges is so tenuous in large river systems that the common practice of dividing a river’s sediment load by its drainage area to obtain a mean rate of erosion or denudation may yield a number that has little by: Wind River Aquifer Wind River Aquifer is composed of the Eocene Wind River formation Wells completed in the Wind River Aquifer are generally for stock and domestic, characterized by relatively low yields and poorer water quality (Morris et al. ; Whitcomb and Lowry, ; McGreevy et al., ; Libra et al. ; Daddow, ).File Size: 4MB. Changes to designated uses and site-specific water quality criteria are made through a formal process and can be viewed here. The salinity standards adopted through the Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Forum (Forum) also apply to Wyoming surface waters within the . The Wind River Basin or Shoshone Basin is a semi-arid intermontane foreland basin in central Wyoming, United is bounded by Laramide uplifts on all sides. On the west is the Wind River Range and on the North are the Absaroka Range and the Owl Creek Casper Arch separates the Wind River from the Powder River Basin to the east and the Sweetwater .
