Perennial/Intermittent Streams and Springs in the Peach Springs 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 4.8-4.  The locations of major springs as well as perennial and intermittent streams are shown on Figure 4.8-5.   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 4.8.4 - Surface Water Conditions and Section 4.0.2 - Surface Water Hydrology.

  • There is one perennial stream, the Colorado River, located along the northern basin boundary.   Based on USGS stream gage data from 1998 to present, there is likely an additional perennial/intermittent stream not identified by Arizona Game and Fish Department in 1997.  This stream, Spencer Canyon, is not shown on Figure 4.8-5 but can be found on Figure 4.8-4.

  • There are 14 major springs with a measured discharge of 10 gallons per minute (gpm) or greater at any time.  The largest discharge rate was 1,730 gpm at Spencer spring.

  • Springs with measured discharge of 1 to 10 gpm are not mapped but coordinates are given in Table 4.8-4B.  There are five minor springs identified in this basin.

  • Listed discharge rates may not be indicative of current conditions; however, all spring measurements in the basin are relatively recent with measurements taken between 1991 and 1995. 

  • The total number of springs identified by the USGS varies from 28 to 29, depending on the database reference.
