Seeps and springs (hereafter referred to as springs) occupy a very small land area in the arid southwest, yet they are vital resources for many plant and animal species. Despite their limited geographical distribution, they are important in the conservation and management of both common and threatened and endangered species and are often focal points for land manager activities. Additionally, springs are an important resource for both human and livestock use and are often “improved” through impoundment and/or excavation and then used in situ or diverted away from the source to holding tanks.
