PDF (325kb)This memorandum represents the most current assessment of the groundwater resources in the Bear River Basin
PDF (97kb)This chapter discusses the data sources, approach, organization, and computer-based mapping used in this current study and compares them to the previous Ground Water Resource Investigations contained within the 2001 and 2011 Bear River Basin Water Plans
PDF (6,222kb)This study examines groundwater resources that underlie the Bear River drainage basin in Wyoming as well as areas in Idaho and Utah that are tributary to the Wyoming part of this basin
PDF (5,336kb) A complete description of the geologic framework of the Bear River Basin must include summary accounts of the assemblages of geologic and hydrogeologic units and structural elements that define each of their geometry. To accomplish this, an extensive set of figures and maps, presented as plates, are included in this report.
