Guidelines for Evaluating Streamflow Depletion from Groundwater Withdrawals (PDF) (December 17, 2009) Groundwater withdrawals do not necessarily impact nearby streamflow at a rate equivalent to the well withdrawal rate. Although directly connected, a number of factors influence where along the stream, when, and by how much streamflow will be reduced by pumping groundwater. These draft guidelines were developed to assist water users in evaluating how their individual groundwater withdrawal impacts streamflow. Please note: The US Geological Survey has developed an on-line interface to STRMDEPL08, a software program used in the Guidelines. The interface is discussed in: Internet-Based Interface for STRMDEPL08, by Howard Reeves and A. Jeremiah Asher, USGS Open-File Report 2010-1247.
