Peltz, L.A., Medina, R.L., and Buto, S.G., 2005, 1:750,000-scale hydrographic areas and basin-wide pumpage, recharge and interbasin flow estimates of Nevada: U.S. Geological Survey data release, https://doi.org/10.5066/P9ZAPV5C.

Summary

These data were released prior to the October 1, 2016 effective date for the USGS’s policy dictating the review, approval, and release of scientific data as referenced in USGS Survey Manual Chapter 502.8 Fundamental Science Practices: Review and Approval of Scientific Data for Release. This data set consists of the administrative hydrographic area (HA) boundaries for Nevada at 1:750,000-scale and estimates of natural recharge, artificial recharge, pumpage, and net ground-water flow for each basin where the information is available. Formal hydrographic areas in Nevada were delineated systematically by the U.S. Geological Survey and Nevada Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Division of Water Resources (NDWR) in the late [...]

Purpose

This data set was created as part of a U.S. Geological Survey study, done in cooperation with the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection, to evaluate the susceptibility and vulnerability of ground water to anthropogenic contamination. The intended uses of this data set include, but are not limited to, natural resource modeling, mapping, and visualization applications.
