A major project was conducted on the Workman
watersheds to evaluate the hydrology of higher elevation mixed
conifer forests and to determine the changes in streamflow
and sedimentation from manipulating the forest vegetation.
The 3 watersheds on Workman Creek are North Fork, Middle Fork,
and South Fork. The treatments evaluated were selected to
cover the range of water yields possible through manipulation
or removal of the forest vegetation (Rich
and Gottfried 1976). More...>
Treatments and Practices - how the study was conducted and treatments used, and management
practices used and results for each, with photos and maps
of the areas within the reserve.
Data Collected - this section provides access to data
collected when we have converted it into electronic form.
Data on precipitation, streamflow, sediment loads, and other
data were collected on the Workman Creek Watershed over
the period from 1957 to about 1983.
Documentation for the data - what measurements were
recorded, how to interpret it, the years covered, etc.
Data - select the watersheds, time period, etc. then
view and download the results
Images - available in the image database illustrating various
aspects and conditions found in watersheds in the southwestern
States. These can be accessed after getting into the database
by using the key word workman creek
