Water Rights and Water Resources

By: L. R. Herbert, R. W. Cruff, and K. M. Waddell

The Kaiparowits Plateau area is located in central Garfield and eastern Kane Counties of Utah and north-central Coconino County of Arizona. The area covers about 4,850 square miles and includes the drainages of the Escalante and Paria Rivers, and several smaller drainages to the Colorado River between the Escalante and Paria River drainages.

This report presents results of investigation of ground-water conditions in the Kaiparowits Plateau area of south-central Utah and north-central Arizona. The area is under investigation for development of its large quantities of energy resources, primarily coal. Production and transportation of those energy resources would require attendant development of water resources. The purpose of this study was to determine the availability and quality of ground water in major aquifers in the area?namely aquifers in the Entrada, Navajo, and Wingate sandstones; emphasis was on the Navajo Sandstone.
