Groundwater is stored in aquifers and is extracted through a well drilled into the aquifer. A well is a pipe in the ground that fills with water. This water can be extracted by a pump and used to supply water for drinking, crop irrigation, industrial purposes, and to recharge lakes.

Estimation of Shallow Ground-Water Recharge in the Great Lakes Basin By B.P. Neff, A.R. Piggott1, and R.A. Sheets Abstract This report presents the results of the first known inte-grated study of long-term average ground-water recharge. This report presents estimates of long-term (tens of years) average recharge to shallow aquifers (usually less than ft deep) for the portions of Ontario and the eight Great Lakes States that lie within the Great Lakes Basin, the upper St.

Lawrence River Basin extending downstream to the cities of Massena, New York, and Cornwall, Ontario, and the Ottawa River Basin. Estimates of recharge are based on base-flow estimates for streams throughout the Great Lakes Basin and the assumption that base flow in a given stream is equal to the amount of shallow ground-water recharge to the surrounding watershed, minus losses to evapotranspiration.

Base-flow estimates were developed throughout. Estimates of recharge are based on base-flow estimates for streams throughout the Great Lakes Basin and the assumption that base flow in a given stream is equal to the amount of shallow. - Map showing shallow ground-water recharge rates in the Great Lakes Basin.

The Poznan Plateau, selected as the test area (5, km. 2), is located in the central part of the Poznan Lowland (western Poland). In territori-al structure it is delimited by the river valleys of the Warta in the north and east and by Warta’s.

Groundwater extraction is one of the most important criteria of land degradation especially land subsidence in arid and semi-arid areas. Understanding the relationship between water extraction and recharge of groundwater can lead to better watershed management.

Current work includes estimates of the changes in recharge with time, increased spatial resolution of recharge estimates, and development of techniques to project recharge under changing climatic conditions.

Groundwater in the Great Lakes Basin (GLB) serves as a reservoir of approximately to km 3 of water and is a significant source of water to the Great Lakes. Indirect groundwater inflow from tributaries of the Great Lakes may account for 5–25% of the total water inflow to the Great Lakes and in Lake Michigan it is estimated that groundwater directly contributes 2–% Cited by: Estimation of shallow ground-water recharge in the Great Lakes Basin / by B.P.

Acknowledging these facts, the generally accepted method for estimating the groundwater quantity part of the Reserve, as an element of defining the so-called Resource Directed Measures (RDM) of the NWA (DWAF,Xu et al., ), is to use estimates of groundwater recharge and stream baseflow as the upper limit for groundwater exploitation Cited by: 5.

Hydrogeologic data from Regional Aquifer System Analyses (RASA) studies by the U.S. Geological Survey in the Great Lakes Basin, United States, duringwere compiled and used to estimate the total volume of water that is stored in the many aquifers of the basin.

These studies focused on six regional aquifer systems: the Cambrian-Ordovician aquifer system in. The SWB groundwater recharge model has been used in several completed and ongoing regional groundwater studies in the U.S. including the High Plains Aquifer [Stanton et al., ], the Lake Michigan Basin [Feinstein et al., ], basins in Wisconsin [Dripps and Bradbury, ] and Minnesota [Smith and Westenbroek, ], and the Northern Cited by: ABSTRACT: To quantify and model the natural ground water recharge process, six sites located in the midwest and eastern United States where previous water balance observations had been made were compared to computerized techniques to estimate: (1) base flow and (2) ground water recharge.

Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Reportp. Water Availability -- Great Lakes Basin. Ground water in the Great Lakes Basin: the case of southeastern Wisconsin follows from an initial location where recharge enters the water table to a final point where it discharges from the ground-water system.

The combined recharge areas that feed a given discharge feature (be it a stream, lake, or wetland) constitutes the zone of ground. [1] Groundwater is a primary hydrological reservoir of the Great Lakes Water Basin (GLB), which is an important region to both Canada and US in terms of culture, society and economy.

Due to insufficient observations, there is a knowledge gap about groundwater storage variation and its interaction with the Great by: The bulk of ground-water flow in settings such as the Great Lakes Basin occurs through permeable material lying at shallow depths below the water table.

However, some of the flow can move to deeper permeable material separated from the shallow part of the flow system by less permeable rock. A regional groundwater-flow model of the Lake Michigan Basin and surrounding areas has been developed in support of the Great Lakes Basin Pilot project under the U.S.

Geological Survey's National Water Availability and Use Program. The transient 2-million-cell model incorporates multiple aquifers and pumping centers that create water-level drawdown that extends into.

The east side of the mountain range is part of Hamlin-Snake Valleys (USGS cataloging unit ) and the west side is part of Spring-Steptoe Valleys (USGS cataloging unit ). In this sense, the wells are withdrawing ground water that originated hundreds if not thousands of years ago as precipitation over land, entered the flow system as recharge, and migrated eastward over long flow paths to be stored below the Lake.

So much for the relation of deep ground water to Lake Michigan. Shallow ground water has its own story. Great Lakes Basin. Mean annual groundwater recharge can be calculated by multiplying a grid of local base flow index (BFI) values by a grid of local mean annual runoff values.

This approach is consistent with that of Wolock (b) to estimate mean annual natural groundwater recharge. The. the Great Lakes along with direct precipitation. American researchers have estimated that more than half of the streamflow entering the U.S.

It is possible to use the mathematical particles to estimate not only the configuration of ground-water flow lines, but also the relative times of travel between the water table where the ground. The amount of fresh groundwater in the Great Lakes Basin is approximately equal to the amount of water in Lake Huron.

Direct and indirect discharges of groundwater to the Great Lakes are estimated to account for as much as % and 42% (respectively) of the inflows to the Great Lakes. InMichigan used 2, gallons of groundwater. The Great Basin Watershed coverskm (, mi2) and extends from the Sierra Nevada Range in California to the Wasatch Range in Utah, and from southeastern Oregon to southern Nevada (NBC Weather Plus Website).

Chambers. by Katherine Ransom and Thomas Harter In California’s Central Valley, many communities depend significantly or entirely on groundwater as their drinking water supply.

Studies estimate the number of private wells in the Central Valley to be on the order ofto(Viers et al., ; Johnson and Belitz, ). Elevated nitrate concentrations in. As groundwater flows westward across the continent, it increases in age, with the oldest groundwater occurring in the western parts.

This means that in order to have travelled almost km from the source of recharge in 1 million years, the groundwater flowing through the Great Artesian Basin travels at an average rate of about 1 metre per year. Biological, chemical, and physical attributes of aquatic ecosystems are often strongly influenced by groundwater sources.

Nonetheless, widespread access to predictions of subsurface contributions to rivers, lakes, and wetlands at a scale useful to environmental managers is generally lacking.
