TERMINOLOGY for BASALT AQUIFERS


Shallow          à          Wanapum Basalt
Intermediate   à   Upper Grande Ronde Basalt
Deep              à   Lower Grande Ronde Basalt


CONCLUSION #1


There Is Little, If Any, Groundwater Movement Vertically Between The Basalt Aquifers
Each Aquifer Is Separate and Distinct
 
Shallow (Wanapum)
Intermediate (Upper Grande Ronde)
Deep (Lower Grande Ronde)


GROUP OF NESTED OBSERVATION WELLS
Groundwater Elevations since 1981

Groundwater Elevations since 1971

Groundwater Elevations since 1981

Groundwater Elevations since 1971

Groundwater Elevations since 1973

The Water Level Data Tell Us Two Things

The Basalt Aquifers Are Separate And Distinct

Water Levels In The Deep Grande Ronde Are Declining   

How Does This Relate To
Geologic and Geochemical Information?

What does it all mean for the future?
