3 LENTIC CHECKLIST HYDROLOGIC

4

5 2. Fluctuation of water table is not excessive. NO

6 3. Riparian-wetland area is enlarging or has reached potential extent Purpose If degradation has occurred, determine if riparian area is  Recovering, or is  Recovered, to its potential extent

7 Sonoma Lake, Nevada No – Pumping has reduced riparian area

8 Kissler Spring, NV At potential extent

9 4. Upland watershed is not contributing to riparian-wetland degradation §Purpose: l Determine if there has been a change in water or sediment being delivered to the riparian-wetland area l Is the change causing degradation?

10 Changing Water Supply, Burnt Mill Creek Snake Range, NV

11 5. Water quality is sufficient to support riparian-wetland plants §Purpose:  Determine if water quality is being maintained  Allowing the site to produce the kind of vegetation necessary to function properly

12 Montana Saline Seep

13 6.) NATURAL SURFACE OR SUBSURFACE FLOW PATTERNS ARE NOT ALTERED BY DISTURBANCE (IE. HOOF ACTION, DAMS, DIKES, TRAILS, ROADS, RILLS, GULLIES, DRILLLING ACTIVITY)

14 7. Structure accommodates safe passage of flows (e.g., no headcut affecting the dam or spillway §Purpose:  If a structure has been constructed to capture more runoff and create a more permanent or larger wetland, determine if the outlet structure provides safe passage of flows
