A study was done during 1994 on selected reaches of the Virgin River from Ash Creek to Harrisburg Dome in the central Virgin River area, Washington County, Utah, to determine gain or loss of flow in the river from seepage. There was a net gain of 10.7 cubic feet per second in the selected 14-mile section of the Virgin River near Hurricane, Utah. The two upstream reaches of this section of the river had a gain of 7.2 cubic feet per second, the two middle reaches had a gain of 3.5 cubic feet per second, and the two downstream reaches had no substantial gain or loss.
