It is being provided to meet the need for timely best science. About this map: This is a map of soils of northern Guam. The source of the geospatial data is the Soil Survey of the Territory of Guam (), conducted by the USDA Soil Conservation Service (SCS, but now NRCS – Natural Resources Conservation Service) in cooperation with Guam Department of Commerce and University of Guam (UOG).

Predicting attenuation of salinized surface- and groundwater-resources from legacy energy development in the Prairie Pothole Region. Oil and gas (energy) development in the Williston Basin, which partly underlies the Prairie Pothole Region in central North America, has helped meet U.S. energy demand for decades.

      Guam Groundwater Current Condtions All Guam Current Condition sites Current data typically are recorded at 5- to minute intervals, stored onsite, and then transmitted to USGS offices every minutes to an hour, depending on the data relay technique used. Digital Atlas of Northern Guam. This website is a digital resource center for data related to the physical and environmental characteristics of northern Guam. Its purpose is to provide accurate and easily accessible baseline information to government agencies, environmental specialists, educators, students, and all interested parties.

Review and critique available literature on water resources and their development on the island of Guam; relate recommendations of previous reports to status of knowledge at the time they were written.

Review past groundwater development (prior to start of. An expected significant population increase on Guam has raised concern about the sustainability of groundwater resources.

In response, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in collaboration with the University of Guam's Water and Environmental Groundwater resources of Guam book Institute of the Western Pacific (WERI) and with funding from the U.S.

Marine Corps (USMC), is. Local mandates In the early s, Guam’s Legislature passed the Water Resources Conservation Act into public law. This legislation outlined protections for Guam’s groundwater through authorizing Guam EPA to regulate wells, well development and any activity that would affect the quality of groundwater.

The wells selected for this study are representative of the groundwater compositions for the three groundwater zones, and span the six hydrologically connected groundwater basins that make up the NGLA (delineated by the Guam Environmental Protection Agency).

Cave dripwater was collected at five sites (ST1, ST2, SMP, FTM, and TRN) within Cited by: 4. Purchase Groundwater Resources Assessment, Volume 38 - 1st Edition. Print Book & E-Book.

ISBNPages: Hydrologic data-collection activities of the USGS in northern Guam include recording rainfall at selected sites, ground-water levels in wells and the ocean level in Hagatna Bay, and measuring the salinity of ground water in deep monitor wells that penetrate through the transition zone (fig.

patterns to achieve sustainable groundwater quality over the long term. The Groundwater Protection Zone ("GPZ") is an environmental land use management system which designates much of the land surface above Guam's principal source aquifer, the Northern Aquifer, for the protection of Resource Zone (G-1) waters and the Recharge Zone (G-2) waters.

Groundwater is at the very heart of the current and future global water crisis. Groundwater constitutes 96 percent of all freshwater resources on the planet.

By far however, the majority of the material in the book is derived from major continental studies and specific country investigations within those continents.

As the English Editor, several points need to be made relative to the document. First, the book represents a multi cultural approach to groundwater resources and their use. GROUND-WATER RESOURCE: SATURATED LIMESTONES. The primary municipal water supply for the island of Saipan comes from ground water.

Saturated limestones form the principal aquifers on the island. Rainwater infiltrates the high-permeability limestones and. Invarious UN organizations launched a collaborative effort to assess the vulnerability of groundwater in several African cities.

The project addressed the issue of aquifer vulnerability and the protection of groundwater quality. This book is a collection of thirty peer-reviewed papers on the topic, and provides a glimpse of the situation across the continent. The book begins.

This book provides a comprehensive review of the state of international law as it applies to transboundary groundwater resources and aquifers. The main focus is on recent developments and the emerging international law for transboundary aquifers as reflected in the practice of states and the work of the UN International Law Commission, UN Economic Commission for Europe, and International Law.

Water from the aquifer is called groundwater. The Guam Waterworks Authority is in charge of getting water from the aquifer and delivering it to your house. They do this by drilling deep wells into the limestone bedrock and pumping the water up to the surface using electrical pumps.

Dr Habana is Assistant Professor of Groundwater Hydrology at the University of Guam's Water & Environmental Research Institute of the Western Pacific (WERI).

His duties at WERI include serving as Coordinator for the Guam Hydrologic Survey Program, which compiles and analyzes basic data on Guam’s freshwater resources.

Burgeoning population and climate change are among the most critical challenges facing the 21st century. Both have critical implications for groundwater resources, especially in many developing countr.

Groundwater Resource Development describes the basic steps involved in the development of a groundwater resource in the search for productive aquifers. This book discusses groundwater exploration, construction and testing of water wells, water quality and pollution considerations, and groundwater management.

In response, the U.S. Geological Survey, in collaboration with the University of Guam’s Water and Environmental Research Institute of the Western Pacific and with funding from the U.S. Marine Corps, conducted a year study to advance understanding of regional groundwater.

Groundwater Quantity and Quality Management presents the best of current thinking on managing groundwater resources, focusing on the interrelationship between quantity and quality.

Groundwater is an essential resource, yet it is subject to overuse and contamination both in. As Penelope Bordallo-Hofschneider writes in her book A Campaign for Political Rights on the Island of Guam,the Navy cited, among .Groundwater resources in Haiti are considered abundant, with greater than 2 billion cubic meters per year (2 × 10 9 m 3 /yr) of renewable resources and 56 billion cubic meters of reserves.

However, groundwater is not available everywhere and many aquifers are often low yielding, discontinuous, or are at risk from saltwater intrusion, overexploitation, reduced recharge, and contamination.
