Ground-Water resources- Reconnaissance series
United States Dept. of the Interior: Geological Survey
This report, the 27th in the series of reconnaissance ground-water studies which were initiated following authorization by the I960 Legislature, gives the results of a study of the Meadow Valley area. This area includes eight valleys in southeastern Nevada - - Patterson, Spring, Eagle, Dry, Rose, Panaca, Clover, and Lower Meadow Valley - - all part of the Colorado River drainage system.
This study was made and report prepared by F. Eugene Rush, Geologist for the U. S. Geological Survey.
These reconnaissance ground-water resources surveys make available pertinent information of great and immediate value to many State and Federal agencies. As development takes place in any area, demands for more detailed information will arise and studies to supply such information will be undertaken. In the meantime, these reconnaissance type studies are timely and adequately meet the immediate needs for information on the ground-water resources of the areas covered by the reports.
