Hydrogeologic Framework And Water Balance Investigation of Land near the Gothenburg Canal System. Hallum, Doug, 2020. Lincoln, NE, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Conservation and Survey Division, Open File Report 208




The Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) requested that Conservation and Survey Division (CSD) develop a local hydrogeologic framework and conceptual water budget for a parcel of land near a segment of canal in the Gothenburg Canal System to determine likely sources of ponded surface water that are ephemerally present on the parcel. The study seeks to assess the parcel scale water budget and to better understand the parcel-scale hydrology and hydrogeology. The object of this project is to provide reliable information to NPPD and its customers along a small portion of the canal. Information from this report may influence, or be incorporated into, NPPD’s canal water accounting and operations tools. This publication also describes sources, methods, limitations, and recommendations for future work to improve rigor and/or limit uncertainties.
