Abstract : Results of water resources field investigations conducted in eight valleys in Nevada and Utah shows that surface water is almost entirely appropriated and that ground water is the most likely source for MX construction. Ground water use in one valley exceeds perennial yield, perennial yield would be exceeded in two valleys if MX requirements were added into current use, and ground water use in five valleys would not exceed perennial yield with MX requirements.
