Perennial/Intermittent Streams and Springs in the Duncan Valley Basin

Major and minor springs with discharge rates and date of measurement, and the total number of springs in the basin are shown in Table 3.7-5.  The locations of major springs as well as perennial and intermittent streams are shown on Figure 3.7-5.   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 3.7.4 - Surface Water Conditions and Section 3.0.2 - Surface Water Hydrology.

  • There is one perennial stream, the Gila River, in the northern portion of the basin.

  • Several intermittent streams are located in the northeastern portion and along the western boundary of the basin. The Gila River is also an intermittent stream through a portion of the basin.

  • There are two major springs with a measured discharge of 10 gallons per minute (gpm) or greater at any time.  The largest discharge rate was 30 gpm at Gillard Hot Spring.

  • Springs with measured discharge of 1 to 10 gpm are not mapped but coordinates are given in Table 3.7-5.  There is one minor spring identified in this basin.

  • Listed discharge rates may not be indicative of current conditions.  Most of the measurements were taken prior to 1982.

  • The total number of springs identified by the USGS varies from 30 to 36, depending on the database reference.
