Contact: Victor Heilweil
Funding Organization: U.S. Geological Survey
Subject: water availability, great basin, ground water, climate
Data Type: Water Quality
Abstract: The objective of the USGS Water Availability Program is to assess water availability in the Nation’s major aquifer systems. The Great Basin Carbonate and Alluvial Aquifer System (GBCAAS) is part of this federally funded program. Specific objectives of this study include quantifying current ground-water resources, evaluating how those resources have changed over time, and developing tools to assess system responses to stresses from future human uses and climate variability.
