    Figure shows the direction and movement of groundwater and is based on potentiometric surface contour maps obtained from the “Reconnaissance of Groundwater Quality of Eastern Snake River Basin, Idaho” (US Geological Survey - ). In the Plains sub-area, water in alluvium and basalt rock units moves generally southwestward. It is Eastern Snake River Plain Aquifer.

      Groundwater with elevated dissolved-solids concentrations—containing large concentrations of chloride, sodium, sulfate, and calcium—is present in the Mud Lake area of Eastern Idaho. The source of these solutes is unknown; however, an understanding of the geochemical sources and processes controlling their presence in groundwater in the Mud Lake area is needed to better Cited by: 7.

The Eastern Snake Plain Aquifer (ESPA) is located in southeastern Idaho. It is Idaho’s largest aquifer system, and one of the largest in the United States. The aquifer is composed primarily of basalts and covers approximat square miles.

RECONNAISSANCE OF THE HYDROLOGY OF THE LITTLE LOST RIVER BASIN, IDAHO By M. MUNDORFF, H. BROOM, and CHABOT KILBURN ABSTRACT The Little Lost River basin is one of several basins along the northwest flank of the Snake River Plain that has no surface outlet to Cited by: 4.

Ground water is a key resource supporting many aspects of Idaho's way of life. It replenishes our streams and rivers and provides fresh water for irrigation, industry, and communities. In addition, ground water is the source of drinking water for 95% of Idaho citizens.

As Idaho's population grows, so does the need for clean, usable ground water. Ground Water Reports by Geographic Area Technical Report Series.

This report provides information about the current quality of ground water in the major aquifers in Idaho and describes that quality on areal and temporal bases to the level of detail possible from the available data.

Figure 5. A ground-water quality reconnaissance study published nearly 20 years ago shows that chloride levels of about 10 mg/L were widespread in remote areas of the eastern Snake River Plain whereas chloride levels of about mg/L were common in ground-water beneath.

The tern "Eastern Snake River Plain Area1* means the trust water area of the Snake Plain Aquifer upstream from the USGS gaging station on the Snake River at King Hill.

To further define the western boundary of this area, department designated hydrologic basin nos. 37 among other basins, are included in the area. From toapproximately curies of iodine (I) were contained in wastewater generated at the Idaho National Laboratory, with almost all of it discharged at or near the Idaho Nuclear Technology and Engineering Center (INTEC).

Untilmost of the wastewater was discharged directly into the eastern Snake River Plain (ESRP). This reports evaluates the ground-water resources of about 1, square miles in the semiarid uplands south of the Snake River between Bruneau River and Salmon Falls Creek.

The outcropping rocks are the Idavada Volcanics of Pliocene age, and the Idaho Group of Pliocene and Plieistocene age, consisting of the Banbury Basalt of middle Pliocene age and overlying predominantly sedimentary deposits.
