    Abstract: This essay uses topographic map evidence to identify north to south and northwest to southeast oriented through valleys crossing the Sweetwater River-Great Divide Basin drainage divide in the region between the Wind River Range to the west and Crooks Mountain to the east. Groundwater Management. Groundwater remains the foundation for agriculture, business and life in the Kings River service area. Almost all water used for domestic, municipal and industrial purposes and portions of agricultural water is pumped from the underground aquifer, resulting in . River Valley Civilizations Project (Mesopotamia, Egypt, Indus Valley, & China) You and your group will be making a poster about different aspects of the four River Valley Civilizations that we have studied so far this year. The information that you will be researching will come from. River Valley Civilizations Research Project For this project you will compare either Mesopotamia or Egypt to one of the other great early river valley civilizations, either India or China. You will need to pick a specific topic to help focus your research. You can choose anything that interests you, but the following are a few suggestions.
