The model is a 1 year transient simulation of the Kamas valley. Downloaded from Utah Water Division. This is used to test MODFLOW Cloud

This directory contains the shape files and data used to set up the
Argus model of Kamas Valley. All of the shape files and coordinates are in
UTM feet. Things may have changed in the model that did not change here, and if possible
the shapefiles in subdirectory model gis should be used instead.

Comment by Lynette Brooks. These are not the same as how the model ended.
Data and shapefiles put out by the model are the correct model input.

alluvium.shp   The outline of the alluvium. This plus lakes.shp is used to set
               up the active part of the model. The same outline is used for
               aquifer characteristics

alluvunits.shp  Provided by Utah Geological Survey. Surficial geology of the 
                alluvial area. Used for initial delineation of hydraulic 
                conductivity and storage in model.

canalrecharge.shp  Contains the irrigation areas and the amount of recharge that
                   comes from canal loss. Because the canals are well-spread, the
                   loss is considered areally distributed over the canal area.
                   No recharge from canals occurs in the middle of the valley where
                   et occurs. Created by Lynette Brooks Sept 6, 2000

croprecharge.shp   Contains the irrigation areas and the amount of recharge
                   (feet/year) in each area. Many of the middle areas have
                   been changed to 0 recharge, and water is assumed to be supplied to
                   the crops by evapotranspiration. This file is current (Sept. 6, 2000)
                   with the landuse_rech coverage in 

ephrech.shp    Contains the areas and amount (feet/year) of recharge from 
               ephemeral streams near mountains. This is more up-to-date than

evapo.shp    Evapotranspiration amount (feet/year).
             This reflects the theory that crops in middle of valley use no
             irrigation water (it all runs off), but use only precipitation
             and ground water. Updated by Lynette Brooks Sept. 6, 2000

iso_new.shp  Depth to bedrock as determined by Utah Geological Survey. Hugh Hurlow of UGS
             provided the shapefile.

roads.shp   Roads. Used as mapping layer only to help determine location
