Nevada National Security Site Groundwater-Withdrawal Data-Collection Study

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) compiles and maintains groundwater withdrawal data for wells on and adjacent to the Nevada National Security Site. Groundwater withdrawal data are a compilation of measured and estimated withdrawals obtained from published and unpublished reports, U.S. Geological Survey files, and/or data reported by other agencies. Monthly withdrawal data collected from 1951 to present at the 42 wells listed above are available by clicking on the specific well name and selecting "Groundwater Withdrawal Data (monthly)." Monthly withdrawal data collected from 1951 to 2008 for the wells are available in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet and a history of each well in terms of its well construction, borehole lithology, and water levels also is provided (Elliott and Moreo, 2011).

Regional Groundwater-Withdrawal Studies

The USGS, in cooperation with DOE, developed a transient groundwater flow model to evaluate the effects of NNSS activities on the regional groundwater flow system (Belcher and Sweetkind, 2010). A spatially and temporally distributed database of anthropogenic groundwater withdrawals was developed in support of the groundwater flow model (Moreo and others, 2003). This database documents regional groundwater withdrawals from 1913 to 1998. Withdrawal estimates were refined and updated through 2003 as part of a continuing effort to improve and update the groundwater flow model (Moreo and Justet, 2008).
