We hypothesized that Figure 2 reflected best reasonable estimates of amounts of water contributed to Muddy Creek by natural causes, accounted for as base flow and spring seepage.
Total seepage was assumed to be equal to the contributions of snowmelt induced spring seepage (as reflected in the comparison streams) and irrigation-related seepage.
1] (80 cfs) was derived for the Vaughn station (Figure 4), and results were used to estimate sediment contributions and partition estimates of sediment loads at Vaughn among annual base flow, spring seepage, farm field sources, and operational spillage (Table 1).
Recall from Table 1 that original estimates attributed 43 percent of total flow in Muddy Creek to natural sources, including base flow and spring seepage, 18 percent to farm field sources, and 39 percent to operational spillage.
