Research Summary — Streamflow Depletion Modeling: Methods for an Adaptable and Conjunctive Water Management Decision Support Tool

This 2018 study, Streamflow Depletion Modeling: Methods for an Adaptable and Conjunctive Water Management Decision Support Tool, was the initial investigation into the viability of bringing the impacts on streamflow from pumping groundwater into web-based decision support tools. Conducted in British Columbia’s Central Interior in the Bulkley Valley, the study acts as a proof of concept for analysis and decision-support.

With funding from the Government of Canada (NSERC), the University of Victoria, and Foundry Spatial, this study tested analytical models and methods for estimating depletion on real-world stream networks. Authors Xander Huggins, Tom Gleeson, Hailey Eckstrand, and Ben Kerr provide the first response to the question: “can we incorporate groundwater impacts on surface water in our water technology framework?”
