      The Uinta-Animas Aquifer is located in three basins, primarily located in the Uinta Basin in Utah, the Piceance Basin in northwestern Colorado. and the San Juan Basin of New Mexico. Water bearing units are comprised of sandstone, conglomerate, and siltstone. The average thickness of each basin can be anywhere from to feet.

      Uinta is applied to natural features and to the Uinta Utes -- Uinta Basin, Uinta River, Uinta Mountains, Uinta National Forest, etc. Uintah (a variant of Uinta) is applied to political entities -- Uintah County, Uintah School District, Uintah & Ouray Reservation, etc. The U.S. Board on Geographic Names lists the official spelling for Uinta Basin as Uinta -- not Uintah -- as it is a natural.

The Uinta Basin (also known as the Uintah Basin) is a physiographic section of the larger Colorado Plateaus province, which in turn is part of the larger Intermontane Plateaus physiographic division.

It is also a geologic structural basin in eastern Utah, east of the Wasatch Mountains and south of the Uinta Uinta Basin is fed by creeks and rivers flowing south from the Uinta. Technical Publication No.

The Green River Formation deposited in Eocene Lake Uinta in the Uinta and Piceance Basins, Utah and Colorado, contains the largest oil shale resource in the world with an estimated trillion barrels of oil in-place in the Piceance Basin and trillion barrels in the Uinta Basin.

This page Bulletin covers research and results of the Utah Geological Survey’s study of the geology, chemistry, and best practices related to produced water in the Uinta Basin. It includes (1) descriptions and maps of Uinta Basin reservoirs and aquifers, (2) statistical trends of the basin’s water quality, and (3) overviews of produced.

The northern Uinta Basin area covers about 5, square miles (13, square kilometers) in northeastern Utah and northwestern Colorado. Much of the lowlands are arid to semiarid, but the highest parts of the Uinta Mountains have a humid climate. Duringthe average annual precipitation ranged from less than 8 inches ( millimeters) in the lowest part of the area at the Green River.

The potential for developing oil-shale resources in the southeastern Uinta Basin of Utah and Colorado has created the need for information on the quantity and quality of water available in the area. This report describes the availability and chemical quality of ground water, which might provide a source or supplement of water supply for an oil-shale industry.

The Colorado plateau aquifer system is comprised of four major aquifers. These aquifers include the Uinta-Animas, the Mesaverde, Dakota-Glen Canyon, and Coconino-De Chelly aquifers are a crucial groundwater supply to the four corner states of the Southwest region of the U.S.
