Prakash Sapkota

This is a request to the United States Geological Survey. It is in reference to $15,000 allocated by the Office of Coal Management to the Ames District for the use of hydro-logic assistance. At this time, our main concern is to analyze the access and interpretation of data on record may not be exist in the form of computer storage and publication in print. Due to the U.S. Geological Survey, having vast storage and easy access to the data provided, we would like to suggest that the available funds be used for the following two areas if possible.

Area 1: Area one may be handled by the Geological Survey district office in Wilson because of easy accessibility and central locality to all literature and data sources. By compiling this data, a comprehensive interpretation of surface water like quantity, quality, salinity etc. for specific coal leases can be provided to the Ames District hydrologist. Thus, constraint time may be spent on analyzing these interpretations and conducting on-site calculations

Area 2: We foresee area two as a positive and very useful endeavor that can provide expertise from the Water Resource Division of the Geological Survey in Mountain View. The Sub District office and the White River Resource Area office are both located in Mountain View. Due to this, we may obtain their help in the form of infrequent consultations, informal review of tract analysis and field reconnaissance on a one time basis of any lease area lacking available hydro-logic data.

The foregoing should provide adequate justification for requesting the U.S. Geological Survey's assistance.


Zachery Dean

This request to the United States Geological Survey is regarding the $15,000 allocated to the Ames district for the use of hydrologic assistance by the Office of Coal Management. Our main concern at this time is the access and interpretation of the existing data on record, both in publication and computer storage, which we may not know about. Due to the U.S. Geological Survey having access to this vast storage of data, we would like to suggest the available funds go toward following two areas if possible.

The first area would incorporate the Geological Survey district office in Wilson, due to the accessibility and central locale it has to all literature and data sources. Compiling this data will allow a comprehensive interpretation of surface water, i.e., quantity, quality, salinity etc. for site-specific coal leases. The Ames District hydrologist can spend time using the interpretations for analysis and conducting on-site calculations.

Another area we foresee as a positive and useful endeavor is the expertise that the Water Resource Division of the Geological Survey in Mountanview can provide. Since both the sub district office and the White River Resource Area office are located in Mountainview, we can use their help in a multitude of ways. Some possible examples are infrequent consultations, informal reviews of tract analysis and field reconnaissance on a one-time basis of any lease areas lacking available hydrologic data.

The foregoing should provide adequate justification for requesting the U.S. Geological Survey's assistance.

Van VanKerckhove

Proposal for Ames District Funds
The following request to the United States Geological Survey is in regards to the $15,000 allocated by the Office of Coal Management to the Ames District for us in hydrologic assistance.
At this time our main concern is the access and interpretation of existing data that we may not be aware of for our use. This data is recorded in the form of computer storage or printed publication. The United States Geological Survey has vast access to this data, therefore, we would suggest that the funds from the Office of Coal Management be used in the following to areas.

Area 1
The first area we would like funds allocated to is the gathering of this existing data in both forms from the U.S. Geological Survey. The district office in Wilson should be able to handle this request because of its central location and access to all literature and data sources. This data can then be compiled into a comprehensive interpretation of surface water (i.e. quantity, quality, salinity, etc.) for use on site specific coal leases and given to the Ames District hydrologist. Due to time constraints, this time saving area would be beneficial by allowing more focus to be spent on interpretations and on-site calculations.

Area 2
The second area we see as a potentially large benefit is the expertise that can be provided by the Water Resource Division of the Geological Survey in Mountainview. This location houses the sub-district office and the White River Resource Area Office. Therefore, we may acquire their help in the forms of consultations, informal review of tract analysis, and informal review of field reconnaissance on a time-by-time basis for any leases lacking sufficient hydrologic data.
