The Snake Valley Ground-Water Monitoring Well Project is located in west-central Utah and east-central Nevada. The study region is a north-south trending hydrologic basin straddling the Nevada-Utah state line for 135 miles in the east-central part of the Great Basin. Situation within the Basin and Range Province, Snake Valley is bounded by several north-south trending mountain ranges including the Snake Range and Deep Creek Range on the west, and the Confusion Range, Burbank HIlls, and Mountain Home Range to the east-southeast.
This project was established in response to proposed water-development projects in east-central Nevada that could affect ground water resources in west-central Utah. Objectives of the Snake Valley Ground-Water Monitoring Well Project are to improve the understanding of the ground-water flow systems and resources, characterize baseline ground-water levels and chemistry, and measure future changes in these parameters.
