dc.descriptionThis report and accompanying maps describe the geology, geomorphology, and geologic hazards of the Casa Grande area in central Arizona. This mapping covers six 7 1/2' quadrangles (Stanfield, Casa Grande West, Casa Grande East, Coolidge, Double Peak, and Chuichu), and includes the communities of Casa Grande, Coolidge, and Stanfield. Casa Grande is located approximately 80 Ian (50 miles) south of Phoenix along Interstate Highway 10 (Figure 1). The map area encompasses basin floors occupied by major stream systems, low mountain ranges, and the gently sloping piedmonts between them. Basin floor areas have been substantially altered for agricultural fields, and the piedmonts and mountain ranges are used for grazing and mining. Casa Grande has developed into a significant population center, however, and rapid development is occurring on the basin floor and the piedmonts around it. The map area includes parts of the Maricopa-Stanfield and Picacho ground-water basins, from which tremendous amounts of water have been extracted primarily for agricultural purposes. This report is intended to enhance our understanding of the physical environment of the Casa Grande area and to aid in planning for wise development in the future. Geology and geologic hazards of the Casa Grande Area, Pinal County, Arizona - report and six map sheets, scale 1:24,000.
