Major and minor springs with discharge rates and date of measurement, and the total number of springs in the basin are shown in Table 4.9-5.  The locations of major springs are shown on Figure 4.9-5.   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 4.9.4 - Surface Water Conditions and Section 4.0.5 - Surface Water Hydrology.

  • There is one perennial stream, the Colorado River, located along the basin boundary with California.
  • There is one intermittent stream, Sawmill Canyon, located along the northeastern basin boundary.
  • There are 15 major springs with a measured discharge of 10 gallons per minute (gpm) or greater at any time.  The largest measured discharge rate is 100 gpm at Johnston spring.  
  • Springs with measured discharge of 1 to 10 gpm are not mapped but coordinates are given in Table 4.9-5B.  There are 42 minor springs identified in this basin.
  • Listed discharge rates may not be indicative of current conditions. All measurements were taken prior to 1980.
  • The total number of springs identified by the USGS varies from 90 to 100, depending on the database reference.
