The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the City of Fort Madison, conducted a study of the potential sources and possible processes that might produce ammonia in ground water from the Mississippi River alluvium near Fort Madison, Iowa. High ammonia concentrations of to milligrams per liter were detected in water produced from municipal well Fort Madison #4 from.

MLRA A A Southern Mississippi River Alluvium This MLRA (shown in red in the figure above) is in Louisiana (32 percent), Arkansas (26 percent), Mississippi (26 percent), Missouri (12 percent), Tennessee (3 percent), and Kentucky (1 percent). A small part of Illinois also is in the area.

This MLRA makes up about 29, square miles (76, square kilometers). A study of the Mississippi River alluvium near Muscatine, Iowa, was conducted to evaluate ground-water flow and water quality using data collected from June through June The study area included approximately 80 square miles in parts of Muscatine and Louisa Counties in Iowa and Rock Island and Mercer Counties in Illinois.

A steady-state, ground-water flow model was constructed using. The alluvium generally is thickest in the center part of the valley near the river, but there are instances where the thickest materials are near a valley wall. The volume Ammonia in ground water from the Mississippi River alluvium water stored in the Mississippi and Missouri River alluvial aquifer varies somewhat, but is estimated to be about trillion gallons.

The Brazos River alluvium aquifer underlies the Brazos River in Texas from Bosque County to Fort Bend County. The aquifer, one of 21 minor aquifers in the State, supplies water for irrigation, domestic, stock, and commercial use.

Alluvium (from the Latin alluvius, from alluere, "to wash against") is loose, unconsolidated (not cemented together into a solid rock) soil or sediment that has been eroded, reshaped by water in some form, and redeposited in a non-marine setting.

Alluvium is typically made up of a variety of materials, including fine particles of silt and clay and larger particles of sand and gravel. Alluvium: mainly valley fill consisting of silt, sand, and gravel; includes some terrace deposits and glacial drift of Pleistocene age in some areas; locally includes hot spring tufa.

The older part of the alluvium, where present, is probably of Pliocene age. The data formerly available on this page is now available on the Corps of Engineers Access to Water website.
