Abstract:  The objective of the proposed study is to reassess the surface-water and ground-water hydrology of Rush Valley to develop a new conceptual model of the ground-water flow system in the valley. Specifically, the proposed study will update the water budgets, develop new potentiometric surface maps for the principal basin-fill aquifer, a new map of water quality in the basin-fill aquifer, and assess inter-basin flow from Rush Valley to adjacent valleys.
