Summary

This coal-resource area in the Upper drainages of Huntington and Cottonwood Creeks of central Utah was studied in order to better define the hydrologic system, to identify the hydrologic effects of underground coal mining, and to devise methods to detect these effects. Discharge records from gaging stations in this mountainous area indicated that there are large differences in the annual discharge of streams per unit area of drainage. These differences are attributed to differences in precipitation, differences in evaporation and sublimation of the snowpack, and to subsurface movement of water out of some basins, mainly along fractures. Dissolved-solids concentrations in surface waters ranged from 130 to 503 milligrams per liter; in [...]
