A Conceptual Model of Ground-Water Flow in the Eastern Snake River Plain Aquifer at the Idaho National Laboratory and Vicinity with Implications for Contaminant Transport. Prepared in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Energy By Daniel J. Ackerman, Gordon W. Rattray, Joseph P. Rousseau, Linda C. Davis, and Brennon R. Orr. The Eastern Snake River Plain Aquifer was designated a sole source aquifer in It provides the sole source of drinking water for nearly , people in southeastern and south central Idaho. The aquifer stretches across much of south central Idaho and is Idaho's largest basalt aquifer, covering an area of approximat square miles. This report provides information about the current quality of ground water in the major aquifers in Idaho and describes that quality on areal and temporal bases to the level of detail possible from the available data. In Idaho, as in the rest of the Nation, the quality of ground-water resources can be degraded by human ac­ by: 9. Overview of the Snake River Plain Aquifer. The Snake River Plain Aquifer underlies the Snake River Plain, which extends from near the western boundary of Yellowstone National Park in eastern Idaho to the Idaho-Oregon border where the Snake River enters Hells Canyon (Figure 1 below).

The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Energy, conducted aquifer tests during –18 on wells at and near the Idaho National Laboratory, Idaho, to define the hydraulic characteristics for individual wells. These were short-duration aquifer tests, conducted with a limited number of observations during.   Eastern Snake Plain Aquifer Overview. The Eastern Snake Plain Aquifer (ESPA) is located in southeastern Idaho. It is Idaho’s largest aquifer system, and one of the largest in the United States. The aquifer is composed primarily of basalts and covers approximat square miles.

THE SNAKE RIVER PLAIN AQUIFER THE SNAKE RIVER PLAIN AQUIFER underneath the Idaho National Laboratory is one of the most productive groundwater resources in the U.S. Each year about 2 million acre-feet of water is drawn from the aquifer. Approximately 95 percent of the water withdrawn from the aquifer is used for irrigation, 3 per-.
