Hydrologic Evaluation of Ashley Valley, Northern Uinta Basin Area, Utah (TP-54)

Water Rights and Water Resources

By: J. W. Hood

The water resources of the northern Uinta Basin, Utah and Colorado, were studied during 1971-74. Ashley Valley was evaluated in slightly greater detail than the general area, in order to assess the general relation of ground- and surface-water supplies. In Ashley Valley, the principal source of both irrigation supply and ground-water recharge is the flow from Ashley Creek canyon. Ground-water recharge to the valley fill, however, is mainly from canal and field losses along the west side of the valley. The permeability of the fill in most places is high, and water-level records indicate rapid changes in storage in response to the annual applications of irrigation water.

Ashley Valley is one of two areas that were evaluated in slightly greater detail than the remainder of the northern Uinta Basin area, owing to specified needs of the Utah State Engineer. The purpose of this report is to evaluate the general relation of ground- and surface-water supplies in Ashley Valley and the effect of the operation of Steinaker Reservoir on those supplies.
