This self-actuating CD has a 17-page report documenting an investigation of ground cracks localized at the eastern end of Parowan Gap and the western margin of the Little Salt Lake playa within western Parowan Valley in Iron County, Utah. The investigation focused on determining the extent of the ground cracks and understanding the geologic and hydrologic conditions responsible for their formation. This report has important implications for the relation between ground-water withdrawal in Parowan Valley and the formation of ground cracks along the western valley margin. The ground cracks are mapped on USGS 7.5’ topographic and digital orthophoto base maps, and digital images show the physical characteristics of the cracks. A geologic cross section is included, which interprets the geology, structure, and hydrology of Parowan Valley.
