Perennial/Intermittent Streams and Springs in the Detrital 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 4.3-4.  The locations of major springs are shown on Figure 4.3-5.   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 4.3.4 - 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.

  • There is one major spring, Monkey Cove, with a measured discharge of 1,200 gallons per minute (gpm).   This spring is no longer listed on the current U.S. Geological Survey topographical maps because it is normally submerged by Lake Mead.

  • Springs with measured discharge of 1 to 10 gpm are not mapped but coordinates are given in Table 4.3-4B.  There are four minor springs identified in this basin.

  • Listed discharge rates may not be indicative of current conditions.  The most recent measurements were taken during or prior to 1965. 

  • The total number of springs identified by the USGS varies from 24 to 27, depending on the database reference.
