    The Eastern Snake River Plain Aquifer (ESRA) system is an extensive and regionally significant source of groundwater in southeast Idaho, as well as a major contributing source of flow to the Snake River. The ESRA is highly productive and regional groundwater flow is generally from east to west. The Snake River Plain is a recent chapter of Idaho's geological story. It started about 16 million years ago, just after the major pulse of Columbia River basalt volcanism. The first part of Snake River Plain development was not even in the Snake River Plain, but in the Owyhee Plateau area where Idaho, Oregon and Nevada meet.

    Abstract. Studies of flow through the unsaturated zone and perched ground-water zones above the Snake River Plain aquifer are part of the overall assessment of ground-water flow and determination of the fate and transport of contaminants in the subsurface at the Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory (INEEL).Cited by: 5. The Snake River Plain Aquifer Model. The Snake River Plain Aquifer Model (SRPAM) covers the eastern portion of the Snake River Plain (Johnson and Cosgrove, ). The model grid consists of 1, cells ordered in 63 columns and 48 rows (figure 3). Each raster cell is 25 km 2 in area and contains one unconfined aquifer layer.

This description of ground water flow forms the basis for a series of numerical simulations (Petrich, a; b). This report draws, in part, from other reports and papers prepared as part of the TVHP. These include the following: 1. Geologic and Tectonic History of the Western Snake River Plain, Idaho andFile Size: 7MB.

Snake River Plain are evidence of this. Many faults pass through the study area creating highly fractured zones and are considered highly important for their effect on the flow and occurrence of ground water.

Wells penetrating these fractured zones have yields considerably higher than those which do not. Quantitative estimates of ground-water flow directions and traveltimes for advective flow were developed for the regional aquifer system of the eastern Snake River Plain, Idaho.

The work included: (1) descriptions of compartments in the aquifer that function as intermediate and regional flow systems, (2) descriptions of pathlines for flow originating at or near the water table, and (3.

Eventually, the water may leave the aquifer. Ground water can flow naturally from springs or canyon walls, supply water to rivers, or be pulled into wells.

Once on the surface, the water may evaporate or again infiltrate the earth's surface as the cycle continues. How Ground Water is Used in Idaho. Ground water is a vital resource in Idaho.

Geology and Ground-Water Resources of the Snake River Plain in SE Idaho [Harold T. Stearns] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying : Harold T. Stearns. Estimates of streamflow gains and losses along specific subreaches of the Snake River and Henrys Fork, based on the results of five seepage studies completed during –02, varied greatly across the study area, ranging from a loss estimate of ft 3 /s in a subreach of the upper Snake River near Heise to a gain estimate of 3, ft 3 /s in.

The Eastern Snake River Plain Aquifer was designated a sole source aquifer in It provides the sole source of drinking water for nearlypeople in southeastern and south central Idaho. The aquifer stretches across much of south central Idaho and is Idaho's largest basalt aquifer, covering an area of approximat square miles.

Geological Survey Bruce Wicherski, Idaho Department of Health and Welfare Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. The aquifer beneath the eastern Snake River Plain covers an area of approximat square kilometers. Hosted in layered basalts with occasional sediment deposited between layers, the highly fractured rubble zones at the contacts between layers provide the primary conduit for ground-water flow.

Primarily considered to be an unconfined. The Snake River Plain Aquifer and the INEEL. The Snake River Plain aquifer contains about as much water as Lake Erie.

The potential storage capacity of the aquifer is million acre-feet, this is enough to cover the entire state of water with 4 feet of water. The yearly recharge is 8 million acre feet. The maximum apparent velocity of ground-water flow in basalt aquifers beneath the eastern part of the Snake River Plain in southeastern Idaho has been measured with chemical and radioactive tracers for distances up to 3, feet in a single aquifer.

THE SNAKE RIVER PLAIN AQUIFER THE SNAKE RIVER PLAIN AQUIFER underneath the Idaho National Laboratory is one of the most productive groundwater resources in the U.S. Each year about 2 million acre-feet of water is drawn from the aquifer. Approximately 95 percent of the water withdrawn from the aquifer is used for irrigation, 3 per.

Ground-water Movement The ground-water flow regime beneath the eastern Snake River Plain is an important factor in determining the potential for ground-water contamination, and for predicting the movement of contaminants that reach the ground-water system.

Beneath the Eastern Snake River Plain (ESRP) in Idaho, United States of America, is the ESRP aquifer (), one of the most productive and heavily-used aquifers in the United e of its association with tectonic and thermal features of the Yellowstone hotspot track (Whitehead, ), the ESRP is recognized as the location for potential (and actual) geothermal by: 5.The regional aquifer system of the eastern Snake River Plain is an important component of the hydrologic system in eastern Idaho.

The aquifer was thought to be the largest unified ground-water reservoir on the North American continent but is probably second to the Floridian aquifer in the southeastern United States. Flow in the aquifer is from major recharge areas in the northeastern part of Cited by: 5.Area Having A Common Ground Water Supply.
