Abstract

A study was conducted to estimate the contribution of groundwater and other natural sources to the salinity of streamflow in the Upper Colorado River Basin. Salt-load estimates were derived from a mass balance using measurements of quantity and quality of base streamflow. Groundwater inflow was considered to represent the bulk of the streamflow during the low-flow winter months. (USGS)
