Ground water in unconsolidated deposits of Pleistocene age in part of the Little Arkansas River basin has been polluted by the influx of saline water. The source of the saline water generally is oil-field brine that leaked from disposal ponds on the land surface. Locally, pollution by saline water also has been caused by upwelling of oil-field brine injected under pressure into the "lost. Report issued by the U.S. Bureau of Mines on the disposal methods of oil-field brine. The study focuses on the Arkansas River area of western Kansas. This report includes tables, graphs, illustrations, and maps Topics: Oil field brines., oil field drainage, oil fields Author: C. J. Wilhelm, H. M. Thorne and M. F. Pryor. Saline Water in the Little Arkansas River Basin Area, South-Central Kansas The source of the saline water generally is oil-field brine that leaked from disposal ponds on the land surface. Locally, pollution by saline water also has been caused by upwelling of oil-field brine injected under pressure into the "lost-circulation zone" of the. Check with your county for used motor oil recycling centers in your area. Drain used motor oil from your car into a clean leakproof container, and close it with a screw on top. Don’t use a container that stains with any type of household chemical. Moreover, you can consider purchasing a container [ ].
Drought conditions in the Midwest are drying up the Arkansas River basin. Shrinking water levels are ravaging crops, sapping tourism and threatening drinking water . There has been a rare sight in the normally dry Arkansas River south of Garden City lately – flowing water. As The Garden City Telegram reports, as much as two feet of water has been running through the normally dried out river bed – the result of wetter weather conditions upstream.. Mark Rude, executive director of Southwest Kansas Groundwater Management District No. 3, said the six. Past disposal of oil-field brine at the surface has caused substantial contamination of water resources in Kansas. Natural saline water occurs in and discharges from Permian bedrock in parts of the state, and other anthropogenic sources of saline water exist, requiring clear identification of different sources. Arkansas-Oklahoma Arkansas River Compact Estimated Annual Depletion Allowances. Arkansas River Riparian Water Use. Minimum Streamflows in the Arkansas River Basin Safe Yield of Streams . Potential Site Data Use of Surface Water in the 15 County Study Area.
major drainage or collection fea ture of the area such as a stream, river or lake. But names alone do not tell us much about the char acteristics of a watershed. Drainage basins, or watersheds, come in all shapes and sizes, with some only covering an area of a few acres while others are thou sands of square miles. To overcome this, the United. Some row crop agriculture is also present in the Arkansas River Valley. Soils in this area were formed by deposition of the river, by landslides that moved to the foot slopes, and by the weathering of the existent parent material. Crop production in the Ozarks Plateaus and Ouachita Mountains is limited, mainly revolving around pasture lands. During the late s, I worked with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in evaluating the origin of naturally occurring brine springs and salt plains in the Arkansas and Red River drainage basins. Past disposal of oil-field brine at the surface has caused substantial contamination of water resources in Kansas. at a site in a vegetated riparian zone along the Arkansas River in south.
