The two purposes of this report are to Estimated ground-water recharge from streamflow in Fortymile Wash near Yucca Mountain document ground-water recharge from stream-flow in Fortymile Wash during the period from previously unpublished ground-water levels in boreholes in Fortymile Canyon during andand to quantitatively estimate the long-term ground-water recharge rate from streamflow in Fortymile Wash for four reaches of Fortymile Wash.

The isotopic compositions of uranium in tuffs spanning the water table in two Yucca Mountain boreholes indicate that Pleistocene water-table rises likely were restricted to 25–50 m above modern positions and are in approximate agreement with water-table rises estimated from zeolitic-to-vitric transitions in the Yucca Mountain tuffs (less than.

Of the parameters estimated by HYDRUS-1D inverse simulations, K s has the greatest impact on the falling head test model results when the system is near saturation (volumetric water content > 90%).

According to the simulation results, the biozone is near saturation and, therefore, K s weighted most heavily in the data analysis. Ground-water recharge from streamflow data, NW Florida.
