Major and minor springs with discharge rates and date of measurement, and the total number of springs in the AMA are shown in Table 8.3-5.  The locations of major springs and perennial and intermittent streams are shown on Figure 8.3-5.   Descriptions of data sources and methods for intermittent and perennial reaches and springs are found in Volume 1, Appendix A.

  • A portion of the Agua Fria is the only perennial stream in the AMA.
  • Intermittent streams are found on the eastern AMA boundary and in the south central part of the AMA.
  • There is one major spring, Del Rio, with a measured discharge of 874 gallons per minute (gpm).
  • Springs with measured discharge of 1 to 10 gpm are not mapped but coordinates are given in Table 8.3-5B.  There are 10 minor springs.
  • Listed discharge rates may not be indicative of current conditions.  Most spring measurements were taken during or prior to 1981.
  • The total number of springs, regardless of discharge, identified by the USGS or ALRIS varies from 57 to 65, depending on the database reference.
