Depth to ground water contours of hydrographic area 153, Diamond Valley, Nevada

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

This data set consists of depth to ground water contours for hydrographic-area (HA) 153, Diamond Valley, Nevada. These data represent static ground-water levels measured in the HA during March and April of 2001. These data were created as part of an effort to provide statewide information on water table and depth to ground water for Nevada. Digital water-table contours from 38 published reports representing data from 1947 to 2004 were combined to create a single statewide data set. Water-table contours for Diamond Valley were published in 1968 (Harrill, 1968), the depth to water has increased by tens of feet in this basin, however, so more recent data were needed to estimate current contours. This data set and the associated water-table data were used to develop raster based models of water table and depth to ground water.
