2019 Willow Spring Breakup & Summer Monitoring & Hydrological Assessment

This report provides results from an assessment of the relative magnitude of spring breakup floodwater and summer hydrologic conditions. Conditions were monitored at various locations throughout Willow and were documented through visual observations and aerial and ground photography. Peak spring breakup conditions occurred between May 22 and June 3 across the monitoring area. During peak conditions, floodwater was generally confined within channels and swales. Stage was receding at all gage stations by June 7. Stage and discharge generally declined over the summer months, with occasional increases resulting from rainfall events. Summer peak conditions generally occurred between mid-August to the end of the summer monitoring period.
