Surface water and groundwater exchange along the Cache la Poudre River: considerations for conservation planning
This study offers a method for estimating riparian water budgets from river point flow data to demonstrate how a water budget framework can guide strategic conservation planning. Groundwater and surface water exchange patterns along the Cache la Poudre River were evaluated in the period of 1980 to 2009 to describe variations between river reaches, relationships to flow, and to develop water budgets in three riparian study areas. In the absence of sufficient groundwater data along the river, this approach is intended to contribute a pragmatic way to begin to evaluate riparian water availability, ...
