Project Overview

This project builds upon the springs and seeps inventory funded by the Desert LCC.

This project will:

  • Fill a significant gap in aquatic habitat information for scenario planning.
  • Create a publically available geospatial database of approximately 2,000+ known Great Basin springs.
  • Create a summary report on the biotic and abiotic conditions of the known springs.

This is a target of opportunity project.
