Perennial/Intermittent Streams and Springs in the Willcox Basin

Minor springs with discharge rates and date of measurement, and the total number of springs in the basin are shown in Table 3.14-5.  There are no major springs identified in this basin. The locations of perennial and intermittent streams are shown on Figure 3.14-5.   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 3.14.4 - Surface Water Conditions and Section 3.0.2 - Surface Water Hydrology.

  • There are five perennial stream reaches in this basin, Turkey Creek, Rucker Canyon, Grant Creek, Big Creek and Leslie Creek.  Most perennial streams are in the Chiricahua Mountains along the southeastern boundary or the Pinaleño Mountains on the northeastern boundary.
  • A number of intermittent stream reaches are located in these two mountain ranges as well.
  • Springs with measured discharge of 1 to 10 gallons per minute (gpm) are not mapped but coordinates are given in Table 3.14-5.  There are eight minor springs identified in this basin.
  • Listed discharge rates may not be indicative of current conditions.  All of the minor spring measurements were taken prior to 1985. 
  • The total number of springs identified by the USGS varies from 87 to 92, depending on the database reference.
