Hydrologic data collection activities in the Solomon Gulch basin near Valdez, Alaska

January 1, 1994

In 1981, the Alaska Power Authority completed construction of a dam spillway at the north end of Solomon Lake near Valdez. Regulation and diversion from the dam since 1982 have significantly altered the natural flow characteristics of Solomon Gulch. In September 1986, the Geological Survey began data collection to determine mean daily discharge at four sites below Solomon Lake and thus document the effects of regulation and diversion of water on the flow at various points in the system. Periodic discharge measurements and continuous records of water stage were obtained at two of the sites, and daily discharge values were computed for all four sites. The report contains descriptions of the data collection sites and the discharge records for each site for September 1986 and water year 1987. (USGS)
