Abstract

Three Parshall flumes were installed within East and West Glacier Lakes watersheds during the summer of 1987. Each Parshall flume was prefabricated fiberglass construction fitted with a hypolon liner to bring as much groundwater flow as possible to the surface so that it could be measured by passing the water through the flume. The liner was buried as deep as was practical in front of the flume and to the sides of the flume for as reasonable a distance as was possible to intercept groundwater moving through the area. Some difficulty was encountered in burying the liner at all locations because of large boulders that could not be removed without substantial disturbance.
