Summary

The U.S. Army Fort Irwin National Training Center (NTC), approximately 35 mi north-northeast of Barstow, California, covers approximately 1,177 square miles, and is comprised of ten groundwater basins, three of which have been subdivided into subbasins on the basis of additional hydrologic testing. Since the early 1990s, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has been studying water resources issues at Fort Irwin. One issue of concern is the potential effect of groundwater development resulting from planned training expansion and infrastructure at the NTC on natural springs and seeps, an important water source for wildlife. In 2010, the USGS entered into cooperative agreements with the U.S. Army to complete studies of groundwater resources [...]

Purpose

Data were collected for two purposes: (1) to quantify the spatial extent of groundwater at three groups of natural springs, and to detect hydrologic change in spring characteristics between 2015 and 2017, and (2) to investigate the subsurface structure associated with ground failures on the surface of a dry lakebed.
