Cache Valley is a rural area in northern Utah experiencing an increase in urbanization and ground-water use. Ground water, mostly from the basin-fill aquifer, provides a significant proportion of the drinking-water supply in Cache Valley. Maintaining adequate ground-water supplies and limiting the potential for well interference are critical issues in determining the extent and nature of future development in Cache Valley.
This study is an assessment of the potential for aquifer storage and recovery projects in Cache Valley, including the identification of potential sites, recommendation of most appropriate methods, permitting requirements, and determination of data-collection needs.
