Adjustment of Mountain Stream Channels to Flow Regime Alteration, Preliminary Analysis
One aspect of instream flow regimes being actively debated is the
need for channel maintenance or flushing flows. However, little
quantitative information exists as to how different types of channels,
particularly higher elevation, mountain stream systems, respond to
changes in the flow regime resulting from water development activities.
This paper discusses the effect flow diversion has had on
higher elevation stream systems located in Wyoming and Colorado.
