Description This is a study of groundwater inflow and outflow on the Naches and Tieton rivers for a Total Maximum Daily Load (water cleanup plan) temperature analysis. Methods used included seepage runs, a thermal infrared survey, vertical hydraulic gradient measurements, and hyporheic temperature measurements.

Four of six aggregated reaches on the Naches River showed flow gains; one reach showed a flow loss. The total flow gain estimate for the Naches was 200 cfs, and flow loss was 59 cfs. Results for two reaches on the Tieton River indicated flow gains, while one showed a flow loss. The total flow gain estimated on the Tieton River was 42 cfs, and flow loss was 31 cfs.

This revised 2007 version differs from the 2006 version because (1) more information became available for irrigation withdrawals and inputs for the seepage run analysis, (2) one of the flow measurements for the Naches River seepage run was revised, and (3) the number of reaches for the Naches River seepage analysis was reduced from 16 to 6.
