Hydrology and Water Use for Salmon Streams in the Upper Fraser Habitat Management Area, British ColumbiaMicroform - 1995
The Fraser River Action Plan is developing plans for environmentally sustainable salmon production in 15 habitat management areas of the Fraser watershed. This report examines 38 of the known and presently utilized salmon streams within the Upper Fraser Habitat Management Area, with the goal of expressing the habitat sensitivity of the salmon streams through various indices calculated from the hydrologic, water use, and land use data collected for the streams. The report reviews the physiography, surface geology, climate, groundwater resources, and stream stability of the area, and describes the flow characteristics of the salmon streams. It then assesses the impacts of forest harvesting on stream hydrology, calculates water demand, and determines the sensitivity indices of the salmon streams. The report concludes with technical and management recommendations, including development of water management plans.
