Description A profile of river temperatures was gathered from the Spokane River on September 20, 2005. This dataset was obtained using instrumentation programmed to take temperature, depth, and location measurements on frequent intervals while floating between Barker Road Bridge and Centennial Trail Bridge below Plantes Ferry Park in Spokane Valley, Washington. While the results of this profile confirm the Spokane River is recharged by the Spokane Valley Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer beginning near the location of Sullivan Road, data suggests the most significant volume of discharge of aquifer water to the river occurs near Mirabeau Park.

The technique, given proper ambient data gathering, can be used to assess aquifer/stream interaction and provide flux estimates in gaining reaches.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
