Streamflow Depletion by Wells
February 15, 2013 |
"Groundwater and surface-water systems are connected, and groundwater discharge is often a substantial component of the total flow of a stream. Groundwater pumping reduces the amount of groundwater that flows to streams and, in some cases, can draw streamflow into the underlying groundwater system." The United States Geological Survey has published: Streamflow Depletion by Wells—Understanding and Managing the Effects of Groundwater Pumping on Streamflow. Quote from the USGS press release.
