A model for the determination of the natural streamflow of venison creek

Authors: Irwin, R.W., Dickinson, W.T. And W. Lammers
Description: Water takings for the irrigation of tobacco in Ontario reduce streamflow during the months of July and August in most years. Yakutchik and Lammers (5) estimated streamflow reduction for Big Creek at Delhi in the order of 70% for the period July 30 to August 1, 1964, due to irrigation takings in that basin. These reductions affect the natural functions of streams, and cause water use conflicts between stream users. For the management of water resources in such basins, knowledge is required regarding (i) the amount of water available during peak water demand periods (ii) the amount of water likely to be used from various sources and (hi) the relative effects of water takings from different sources on streamflow. Information regarding the natural flows available for use is often scarce, since streamflow records for many of the streams in Southern Ontario began after the practice of tobacco irrigation was established in the early 1950
