Snake Valley Surface Water Data
UGS in cooperation with the Utah Division of Water Right has several surface water monitoring sites in Snake Valley. Other surface water sources in the area are monitored by the U.S. Geological Survey. Please visit the National Water Information System to locate USGS data.
|UGS Snake Valley Surface Water Monitoring Sites|
|Site No.||Name & Description||Water Rights Data Link|
|SF24-1||Twin Springs, northern spring||9599|
|SF24-2||Twin Springs, southern spring||9589|
|SF28-1*||Dearden Springs**, flume on Big Springs Creek above Dearden ranch||9569|
|SF28-2***||Dearden Springs, Highline Ditch flume||manual only|
|SF28-3*||Dearden Springs, East Middle Ditch flume||9570|
|SF28-4*||Dearden Springs, West Middle Ditch flume||9571|
|SF30-1||Foote Reservoir, flume on outlet channel||9595|
|SF30-2||Foote Reservoir, flowmeter on pivot north of reservoir||9574|
* The combined flow in the East (SF28-3) and West (SF 28-4) Middle Ditches, minus the flow at the Big Springs Creek above Dearden Ranch station (SF28-1) should represent the flow of Dearden Springs, provided any flow in the Highline Ditch (SF28-2) is not diverted back into the stream between the three gages.
** Dearden Springs has not been officially named. These springs are also locally known as Stateline Springs, Dearden Ranch Springs, or Burbank Springs.
*** The calculation of the flow on Dearden Springs may be invalid when water is diverted into Highline Ditch due to leakage and multiple re-entry points. The diversion is controlled by local farmers and is not used often.
