    The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Energy, is conducting a study to determine the natural geochemistry of the Snake River Plain aquifer system at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory (INEL), Idaho. As part of this study, a group of geochemical reactions that partially control the natural chemistry of ground water at the INEL were by: 2. Eastern Snake River plain aquifer, south-central Idaho 3 H/ 3 He dating of river infiltration in the Eastern Snake River plain, Idaho, posed challenges due to .

    Snake River Plain Aquifer hydrology • Medium recharge over a large area • Huge storage capability • Outflows focused mostly along primary streams and Snake river • Recharge is fairly uniform over the f square mile area but low • Very high production from wells (up to 7, gpm reported). THE SNAKE RIVER PLAIN AQUIFER THE SNAKE RIVER PLAIN AQUIFER underneath the Idaho National Laboratory is one of the most productive groundwater resources in the U.S. Each year about 2 million acre-feet of water is drawn from the aquifer. Approximately 95 percent of the water withdrawn from the aquifer is used for irrigation, 3 per-.

      The isotopic composition and concentration of uranium and strontium in groundwater, combined with solute concentration data, provide important details regarding groundwater geochemical evolution and flow-pathways in the eastern Snake River Plain by: SRPA - Snake River Plain Aquifer. Looking for abbreviations of SRPA? all water within the eastern Snake River Plain aquifer system is reported to be derived from Groundwater, water quality, major-ion chemistry, trilinear diagram, Mud Lake, Eastern Snake River Plain aquifer, Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory, State.
