Water Rights and Water Resources

By: J. W. Hood

Hansel Valley and northern Rozel Flat are in northeastern Box Elder County and their drainage is directly tributary to Great Salt Lake. The hydrologic budget area, for the Hansel Valley drainage basin only, includes about 152,000 acres. The main ground-water reservoir is in unconsolidated and semiconsolidated rocks of Tertiary and Quaternary age. Water also is obtained from consolidated rocks of Paleozoic age. The source of most water in the Hansel Valley drainage basin is precipitation, which is estimated to average 160,000 acre-feet annually. Of this amount, an estimated 2,500 acre-feet runs off in streams, all of which are intermittent. The total runoff is estimated to average 5,000 acre-feet annually and includes unconsumed spring discharge.

Its purpose is to present available hydrologic data for Hansel Valley, to provide an evaluation of the potential water-resource development of the valley, and to identify needed studies that would improve understanding of the valley's water supply. Hydrologic data from the northern part of adjacent Rozel Flat were collected to aid in evaluation of southern Hansel Valley, and these data also are included in this report.
