Summary

The carbonate-rock aquifer that underlies most of southern Nevada occupies part of what is known as the carbonate-rock province, a physiographic region that encompasses the eastern two-thirds of the Great Basin. The potential for development of water resources in this aquifer has prompted Federal, State, and local authorities to seek additional information about the quality and quantity of ground water in the carbonate-rock province. Investigations of the region's hydrogeology have been ongoing since the early 1900's. U.S. Geological Survey studies dating from 1975 to 1996 used these data to identify temporal changes of water levels in wells, regional potentiometric surfaces, and the direction of regional ground-water flow in southern [...]
