Abstract:  The principal objective of the study is to improve conceptualization and computer model representation of the ground-water flow system in northeastern Tooele Valley. Specific study tasks include (1) refine the distribution of bedrock, flow barriers, and high-permeability flow zones; (2) refine the distribution of hydraulic head and ground-water flow patterns, (3) determine the horizontal and vertical water-quality distribution in the basin-fill aquifer and relate it to geologic structures and stratigraphy and saline ground water associated with the Great Salt Lake; and (4) incorporate new information from 1, 2, and 3 above into improved regional ground-water flow model and simulate the potential range of effects of increased ground water withdrawals.
