Hydrology and Water Use for Salmon Streams in the Pitt/Stave Habitat Management Area, British ColumbiaMicroform - 1995
The Fraser River Action Plan is developing plans for environmentally sustainable salmon production in the Fraser watershed. An important aspect of habitat management planning is an understanding of the hydrologic regimes of the salmon streams in the watershed. This report examines 25 known and presently utilized salmon streams within the Pitt/Stave habitat management area of the Fraser watershed. It reviews aspects of the climate, physiography, surface geology, and soils that affect salmon stream hydrology, describes the local hydrologic regime and flow characteristics of the streams, assesses the effects of forestry and urban land use on the hydrology, calculates potential licensed demand on surface waters in each of the streams, and develops indices for the salmon streams that express their sensitivity to human impacts.
