Dale Bumpers White River National Wildlife Refuge Water Resource Inventory and Assessment

Metadata Updated: May 23, 2017

This Water Resource Inventory and Assessment (WRIA) for Dale Bumpers White River National Wildlife Refuge summarizes available and relevant information for refuge water resources, including aquatic resource needs and issues of concern, both immediate and long-term. A primary purpose of the document is to provide recommendations to address any perceived water resource-related threats, needs or concerns on the refuge. Topics addressed within the WRIA report include the refuge’s natural setting (topography, climate, geology, soils, hydrology), effects of development within the associated watershed(s), potential effects from climate change, assessment and evaluation of refuge infrastructure in relation to water resources, historic and current water monitoring activities on and near the refuge, water quality and quantity information, and state water use regulatory guidelines. All of this information was compiled from publicly available reports (e.g., published and unpublished research reports), databases (e.g., websites maintained by government agencies, academic institutions, and non-governmental organizations), and geospatial datasets from federal, state, and local agencies.The primary drivers of the threats, needs, and issues of concern identified in this assessment are the anthropogenic and environmental stressors occurring within the White River Basin (including the White and Cache Rivers) and, to some degree, influences from the Arkansas and Mississippi Rivers, which are located at the extreme southern portion of the refuge. These areas together comprise the Region of Hydrologic Influence (RHI) for the refuge. For the purposes of this assessment, the RHI was defined as the Upper and Lower White Basins [six digit hydrologic unit code (HUC-6): 110100 and 080203, respectively], which encompass lands and waters upstream of the refuge, and the Lower Arkansas [080204] and Lower Mississippi-Helena [080201] Basins, located immediately downstream of the refuge. The Lower Arkansas and Lower Mississippi-Helena were included because of backwater effects and inundation that occurs on the refuge in association with high water events within these basins.
