HYDROLOGY AND Alaska book EFFECTS OF INCREASED GROUND- WATER PUMPING IN THE ANCHORAGE AREA, ALASKA By KOGER M. WALLER ABSTRACT The Anchorage area includes about square miles at the head of Cook Inlet in south-central Alaska. It is the principal populated area of Alaska and is undergoing rapid growth in the by: 1.

[Roger M Waller; Geological Survey (U.S.),; Alaska. Department of Health and Welfare.]. The climate in this area ranges from the mild and wet maritime zone along the Gulf of Alaska and Bering Sea, to transitional in the Anchorage vicinity and Alaska Peninsula, and to the dry and cold continental zone in western Alaska and the south side of the Alaska range.

Rivers in the area include the Copper, Susitna, and Kuskokwim Rivers, and. Simulated effects of ground-water withdrawals on the Anchorage ground-water flow system.

Some of the potential effects of sustained pumping on the predevelopment ground-water system were simulated using a numerical ground-water flow model (MODFLOW) calibrated to pre conditions (Patrick and others, ).

EFFECTS OF THE MARCH ALASKA EARTHQUAKE ON THE HYDROLOGY OF THE ANCHORAGE AREA, ALASKA The Anchorage hydrologic system was greatly affected by the seismic shock.

Immediate but temporary ef- fects included increased stream dis- charge, seiche action on lakes, and fluctuations in ground-water Size: 1MB. THE ALASKA EARTHQUAKE, MA EFFECTS ON THE HYDROLOGIC REGIMEN Effects of the March Alaska Earthquake On the Hydrology Of South-Central Alaska By ROGER M.

WALLER Water-level fluctuations, long-term changes, and temporary effects caused by response of the ground water to seismic waves. The Anchorage area, at Hydrology and the effects of increased ground-water pumping in the Anchorage area head of Cook Inlet in south-central Alaska, occupies square miles of a glaciated lowland and lies between two estuaries and the Chugach Mountains.

Two military bases are in the area; Anchorage is the largest city in Alaska and the chief transportation center for this part of the State. The bedrock in the Anchorage area is chiefly Tertiary shale in the. The earthquake of Magreatly affected the hydrology of Alaska and many other parts of the world.

Its far-reaching effects were recorded as water-level fluctuations in gages operated on water wells and streams. The close-in effects were even more striking, however; sediment-laden ground water erupted at the surface, and even ice-covered lakes and streams. That is the conclusion of a University of Alaska Fairbanks-led study that traced the melt from one of those high-altitude glaciers to the groundwater that.

The Municipality of Anchorage then mandated standard testing for As in groundwater in both new and existing homes. In it was estimated that approximately 17% (. The Great Alaska Earthquake of Hydrology, Part A.

Current work addresses the implications of additional perturbations to permafrost systems such as ice-jam flooding, lake area change, and wildfire events. Hydrologic connectivity of lowland lakes in discontinuous permafrost.

In general, permafrost limits the subsurface exchange of water, solute, and nutrients between lakes and rivers. Groundwater in the US state of Alaska is critical to both humans and ecosystems.

Interactions among physiography, ecology, geology, and current and past climate have largely determined the location and properties of aquifers as well as the timing and magnitude of fluxes to, from, and within the groundwater system.

The climate ranges from maritime in the southern Cited by: historic information, 25 wells were visited to obtain water-level measurements and characterize ground-water quality.

Alaska has more freshwater resources in the form of lakes, streams, rivers, wetlands, glaciers, and groundwater than any other state in the union (ADEC ). There are few data on the nature and rate of contemporary motions in the Yucca Mountain area because of the low seismicity there.

Any nonwork and recreational trips to the Anchorage area will have a tendency to go by air due to the greater convenience (one-hour journey time compared to a hour ferry/car trip, or a seven/eight-hour car trip via the Richardson Highway). If pumping were needed to fully drain the Chena Lake, there would be a chance that Elodea could be displaced by the pumping system and infest a surrounding area.

Drawdown or draining of the proposed areas would have many unwanted long-term side effects such as negative impacts to adjacent wetland habitat, fish and wildlife becomingFile Size: 17MB.

Direct effects. An irrigation scheme draws water from groundwater, rivers, lakes or overland flow, and distributes it over an area. Hydrological, or direct, effects of doing this include reduction in downstream river flow, increased evaporation in the irrigated area, increased level in the water table as groundwater recharge in the area is increased and flow increased in the irrigated area.
