Abstract:
The Arizona Nature Conservancy's Hassayampa River Preserve is 50 miles northwest of Phoenix near the town of Wickenburg. Four miles of the largely ephemeral Hassayampa River are perennial within the preserve, supporting one of the finest remaining cottonwood-willow forests in the state. Stream flows are affected by wells pumping ground water directly from the alluvial aquifer and may be influenced by wells which intercept lateral inflow from the regional basin-fill aquifer. Developing effective management strategies to protect base flow conditions (∼4 cfs) depends on a clear understanding of the surface and ground-water systems in the preserve. Provided that ground water developers near Wickenburg recognize and incorporate the interconnected nature of each hydrologic system, perennial flow within the preserve is not believed to be immediately threatened.
