This report describes the nongeothermal hydrogeologic system of the Cove Creek basin and an adjoining part of the Beaver River basin north of Milford, in Millard and Beaver Counties, Utah. The groundwater system in the study area hosts two commercial geothermal reservoirs, provides the entire agricultural and culinary water supply, and may be connected with groundwater in adjoining basins.
The report presents a regional hydrogeologic framework assessment, including a newly compiled 1:100,000-scale geologic map, five schematic cross sections, estimates of thickness and hydrologic character of the basin fill based on geophysics and available well logs, and a new potentiometric surface map for the study area. The report also presents and interprets new and compiled geochemical and isotopic data and a new water budget for the study area that includes estimates of subsurface flow to adjoining basins.
