The Mound Spring quadrangle, the southwestern-most 7.5'quadrangle of the area of the Las Vegas 1:100,000-scalequadrangle, is entirely within the Pahrump Valley, spanning theNevada/California State line. New geologic mapping of thepredominantly Quaternary materials is combined with new studiesof gravity and geochronology in this quadrangle. Elevenpredominantly fine-grained units are delineated, including playasediment, dune sand, and deposits associated with several cyclesof past groundwater discharge and distal fan sedimentation.These units are intercalated with 5 predominantly coarse-grainedalluvial-fan and wash gravel units mainly derived from the SpringMountains. The gravel units are distinguished on the basis...

This data release consists of a Microsoft® Access database that contains groundwater withdrawal estimates from known and approximate well locations (withdrawal points) in the Death Valley regional groundwater flow system (DVRFS) to support a regional, three-dimensional, transient groundwater flow model (Belcher and others, 2017; Halford and Jackson, 2020). The database provides information for each withdrawal point including estimated location and completion interval (Moreo and others, 2003). Groundwater withdrawal estimates for each withdrawal point have been compiled by water use and year. Uncertainty was assigned to the annual withdrawal values based on the use and method of estimation (Moreo and others, 2003)....

The locations of principal faults and structural zones that may influence ground-water flow were compiled in support of a three-dimensional ground-water model for the Death Valley regional flow system (DVRFS), which covers 80,000 square km in southwestern Nevada and southeastern California. Faults include Neogene extensional and strike-slip faults and pre-Tertiary thrust faults. Emphasis was given to characteristics of faults and deformed zones that may have a high potential for influencing hydraulic conductivity. These include: (1) faulting that results in the juxtaposition of stratigraphic units with contrasting hydrologic properties, which may cause ground-water discharge and other perturbations in the flow system;...
