Understanding the Effects of Groundwater Pumping on Streamflow Depletion

Welcome to the USGS Cooperative Water Program Webinar series on regional and national water issues and innovation in monitoring, assessments, and research.

California Water Quality Monitoring Council: Understanding the Effects of Groundwater Pumping on Streamflow Depletion through USGS Capture Maps

USGS scientists and Cooperators with the Lower Loup Natural Resources District in Nebraska will describe recent advances in the development of a USGS mapping tool—referred to as capture maps—and provide an example of the use of capture maps to better understand effects of groundwater pumping and resulting streamflow depletion in the Elkhorn and Loup River Basins of central Nebraska, now and decades into the future. (Refer to abstract and related links, pages 2 and 3)
