Perennial/Intermittent Streams and Springs in the Douglas Basin

Minor springs with discharge rates and date of measurement, and the total number of springs in the basin are shown in Table 3.5-4.  There are no major springs in this basin. The locations of perennial and intermittent streams are shown on Figure 3.5-5.   Descriptions of data sources and methods for intermittent and perennial reaches and springs are found in Volume 1, Appendix A.  Additional information on surface water in this basin can be found in Section 3.5.4 - Surface Water Conditions and Section 3.0.2 - Surface Water Hydrology.

  • There is one perennial stream in this basin, Leslie Creek, located on the eastern boundary of the basin.

  • There are six minor springs in the basin.

  • Listed discharge rates may not be indicative of current conditions.  All of the spring measurements were taken prior to 1982 and most were taken in 1951.

  • The total number of springs identified by the USGS varies from six to ten, depending on the database reference.  This is the smallest number of springs in a basin in the planning area.
