Yakima River and its tributaries, irrigation return flows, and releases of stored water from the five main reservoirs in the upper Yakima and Naches river basins: Keechelus, Kachess, Cle Elum, Tieton, and Bumping.

The reservoirs store approximately 30 percent of the average annual. Yakima Basin Study 1 Yakima River Basin Water Resources Introduction This technical memorandum describes the surface and groundwater resources of the Yakima River Basin, water development history for the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation’s (Reclamation) Yakima Project, and Yakima Project facilities and operations, including effects on flows and.

IRRIGATION RETURN FLOW STUDY WAPATO IRRIGATION DISTRICT YAKIMA RIVER BASIN WASHINGTON ABSTRACT A study of return flows in the Wapato Irrigation District in the Yakima River Basin in central Washington was made during the irrigation season to determine effects of the (principally) irrigation use on water quality.

Irrigation return flows comprise approximately 5 percent of the yearly Yakima River flows in the reach from Wilson Creek, a few miles below Ellens- burg, to Sunnyside Dam.

Below Sunnyside Dam this increases to over 30 percent In the summer months, irrigation return flows constitute about 80 percent of the lower river (DOE, ^b). EFFECTS OF HYDRAULIC AND GEOLOGIC FACTORS ON STREAMFLOW, YAKIMA RIVER BASIN, WASHINGTON By HALLARD B.

KINNISON and JACK E. SCEVA ABSTRACT The Yakima River basin, in south-central Washington, is the largest single river system entirely within the confines of the State. Its waters are the mostCited by: 5. the Yakima River Basin.

In turn, this source of water-quality degradation is thought to be one of the causes for declining salmon runs in the Yakima River. The Washington Department of Ecology has set a sediment limit for irrigation return flows of 25 NTUs (56 mg/l).

Some. on 10 selected streams and irrigation returns in the Upper Yakima River Basin. These measurements and corresponding rating curves were completed to support the Ecology Upper Yakima River Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) Study. The objectives of this TMDL were to:.

Evaluate the suspended sediment load in the Upper Yakima River during the. A tributary of the mighty Columbia, Washington's Yakima River is a year-round catch-and-release rainbow trout fishery that rewards those who do a little research.

Yakima River Basin map showing major storage, diversion, and hydroelectric Sediment loading measured in tons of sediment per day to the Yakima River during the irrigation season from major return flow drains in the Roza and Sunnyside.

With little fanfare, the U.S. Geological Survey in mid-September issued the first-ever groundwater flow model for the entire Yakima River Basin, the results of the complex, wide-ranging year.

Water Supply Bulletin 52 () summarizes available surface and ground water data to describe the hydrologic setting of the lower Yakima River basin. During the irrigation season, the Washington State Department of Ecology Stream Hydrology Unit measured streamflow on 10 selected streams and irrigation returns in the Upper Yakima River Basin.

These measurements and corresponding rating curves were completed to support the Ecology Upper Yakima River Total Maximum Daily Load Study. The review analysis of twenty two irrigation efficiency (IE) studies carried out in the Ebro River Basin shows that IE is low (average IE)avg(= 53%) in surface-irrigated areas with high-permeable and shallow soils inadequate for this irrigation system, high (IE)avg(= 79%) in surface-irrigated areas with appropriate soils for this system, and very high (IE)avg(= 94%) in modern, automated and Cited by: flows entering the mainstream rivers below the reservoirs, and the surface and subsurface return flows accruing to the mainstem rivers from the irrigated lands.

The Yakima Project irrigation operation is keyed to using the natural (unregulated) flows and return flows to the extent possible to meet irrigation demands prior to releasing stored water.

These flows and corresponding rating curves were done. Edition 2 of FLOWS method. The FLOWS method is Victoria’s scientific and transparent approach to assessing flow requirements for freshwater reaches of river systems.

The method was first released in and since that time has underpinned the development of flow recommendations across the State.
