The Price River basin in east-central Utah includes a significant part of the Wasatch Plateau and Book Cliffs coal-fields area and currently (1980) is part of the most active coal-mining areas in the State. This report presents data gathered by the U.S. Geological Survey as part of a hydrologic study carried out during the water years 1979 and 1980 in cooperation with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. The data were obtained in the field or from private, State, and other Federal agencies.
The purpose of this report is to make the data available to those engaged in coal mining, to those assessing water resources that may possibly be affected by coal mining, and to supplement two interpretive reports that will be published at a later date.
