Ground-water geochemistry of the Albuquerque-Belen Basin, central New Mexico / by Scott K. : Scott K. Anderholm. The Albuquerque-Belen Basin is in north-central New Mexico and is approximately miles long and 25 to 40 miles wide. The only perennial stream in the area, the southward-flowing Rio Grande, approximately bisects the basin. Ground water is the only source used to obtain drinking-water by: 3. Eighteen chapters deal with the entire Gulf of Mexico basin. Included are significant contributions from Mexican geologists. Nine topical chapters cover regional aspects of physiography and bathymetry, structural framework, the basement crust, salt tectonics and listric faulting, igneous activity, seismic stratigraphy, oil and gas resources, mineral resources and geopressured-geothermal energy.

Chemical data from more than ground-water sites in the Middle Rio Grande Basin of central New Mexico indicate that arsenic concentrations exceed the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

This basin contains the largest metropolitan area in New Mexico. Until , this region relied entirely on groundwater for its water supply.

Interest in arsenic in ground water has greatly increased in the past decade because of the increased awareness of human health effects and the costs of avoidance or treatment of ground water supplies used for consumption. The goal of this book is to provide a description of the basic processes.   Groundwater levels in Albuquerque are rising at the same time as water sources across much of the West are depleting. New research from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) indicates water levels in the aquifer beneath Albuquerque have reached the highest levels recorded since the USGS began mapping groundwater in the area in The trend began in , when groundwater levels Author: Kendra Chamberlain.
