Deer Creek Flow Enhancement Program

Background

In cooperation with the Northern Region Department of Water Resources, the Deer Creek Irrigation District (DCID) is participating in a water exchange program during 2009. The initial pilot program was conducted during 2003 and 2004 and consisted of substituting surface water with groundwater in order to increase fish transportation flows within Deer Creek. A second element of the pilot program was to implement and test the effectiveness of newly developed guidelines for program operations and management. The guidelines, or Groundwater Management Objectives, are designed to eliminate third party impacts by combining a rigorous program of groundwater monitoring with a clear set of groundwater level and groundwater quality criteria for groundwater pumping operations. The documents and maps on this website provide an overview of the Deer Creek Flow Enhancement Program and access to groundwater level and groundwater quality data that has been collected as part of the ongoing program.
