The overall purpose of this study is to investigate the potential geomorphic impacts to Dripping Spring Wash downstream from the Skunk Camp TSF project.

Updated previous analysis of flood flow frequency and volume‐duration‐frequency values for points of interest on Queen Creek and Devil’s Canyon.

Computed flood flow frequency and volume‐duration‐frequency values for points of interest on Queen Creek and Devil’s Canyon.

A series of stream gauges is located within the upper Queen Creek, Devil’s Canyon, and Mineral Creek watersheds, located near Superior, AZ. These gauges are owned and maintained by Resolution Copper Mining (RCM). The historical stream gauge records were analyzed by JE Fuller Hydrology & Geomorphology, Inc in order provide an assessment of the quantity and quality of the surface water data. These data were also used to characterize and quantify volumetric surface water discharge characteristics in the three watersheds.
