LOISS Background Report APP F-Hydrogeology

This report compiled existing information related to groundwater -discharge and -quality. The primary groundwater function within the LOISS Study Area is assumed to be supportive of surface water features and aquatic habitat, and contributions to stream baseflow in particular. Groundwater discharge to streams helps to maintain flow even during prolonged dry periods, and thereby contribute to aquatic habitat. As groundwater is generally of better quality than surface runoff, and is also a more consistent temperature, groundwater also adds to the overall quality of stream flow as well.
