Quantifying Surface Water Influence on Hidden Valley Springs

Semester: Fall 2023


Presentation description

Springs in Hidden Valley adjacent to the Jordan River are used for water supply but their source areas are not known. To quantify possible surface water influence on these springs, novel automatic seepage meters were deployed at regular intervals throughout the East Jordan irrigation canal. A maximum of 5% of annual spring flow may be accounted for by water loss from the nearby irrigation canal. Thus, while the canal does discharge into the springs, it is not a primary source of recharge.
