The primary objectives of this project were to improve methods to determine summer streamflow and stream response to surface mining activities in remote northern regions. A secondary objective was to provide a handbook describing techniques to estimate streamflow regimes and their accuracy for use by small-scale surface mining operators in the north. The project focused on developing standardized streamflow estimation procedures for different levels of surface mining activity versus differing availability of streamflow and climatic data. Decisions trees or flow diagrams based on data availability and size of mining operation were developed that will lead to a particular procedure to estimate streamflow for a particular mining operation.
