TO RECIPIENTS OF WATER SUPPLY OUTLOOK REPORTS: 


Most of the usable water in western states originates as mountain snowfall . This snowfall accumulates during the winter and 
spring, several months before the snow melts and appears as streamflow . Since the runoff from precipitation as snow is delayed, 
estimates of snowmelt runoff can be made well in advance of its occurrence. Streamflow forecasts published in this report are 
based principally on measurement of the water equivalent of the mountain snowpack. 

Forecasts become more accurate as more of the data affecting runoff are measured. All forecasts assume that climatic 
factors during the remainder of the snow accumulation and melt season wil I internet with a resultant average effect on runoff . 
Early season forecasts are therefore subject to a greater change than those made on later dates. 

The snow course measurement is obtained by sampling snow depth and water equivalent at surveyed and marked locations in 
mountain areas. A total of about ten samples are taken at each location. The average of these are reported as snow depth and 
water equivalent. These measurements are repeated in the same location near the same dates each year. 

Snow surveys are made monthly or semi-monthly from January 1 through June 1 in most states. There are about 1900 snow 
courses in Western United States and in the Columbia Basin in British Columbia. Networks of automatic snow water equivalent 
and related data sensing devices, along with radio telemetry are expanding and wil I provide a continuous record of snow water 
and other parameters of key locations. 

Detailed data on snow course and soil moisture measurements are presented in state and local reports. Other data on 
reservoir storage, summaries of precipitation, current streamflow, and soil moisture conditions at valley elevations are also 
included. The report for Western United States presents a broad picture of water supply outlook conditions, including selected 
streamflow forecasts, summary of snow accumulation to date, and storage in larger reservoirs. 

Snow survey and soil moisture data for the period of record are published by the Soil Conservation Service by states about 
every five years. Data for the current year is summarized in a West-wide basic data summary and published about October 1 
of each year .

APRIL 1972 

Snowfall during March was near average in most areas of Alaska where snow 
surveys are conducted. As a result the snovmack in many watersheds 
remains quite heavy, and is at least normal in all areas. 

The water content of the snowpack as measure about April 1 on the Susitna 
and Copper River watersheds is the highest recorded since the program 
began in 1964. The southeast Alaska snowpack also continues to stand at 
record depth. 

Interior Alaska drainage received about normal snowfall during the month 
and snowpack conditions remain well above average. The area by area 
outlook is as follows: 

KOYUKUK Drainage 


The new snow courses along the proposed pipeline route continue to read 
below last year's level except at Betties which is the same as one year 
ago and 116 percent of the five year average. 

YUKON above RAMPART 

Above normal snowfall during March has increased the snowpack and most 
snov7 courses now are above average . 

I 



KUSKOKUIH Drainage 


Snow courses in the upper reaches of the Kuskokwim continue at levels 
slightly above normal but well belov; 1 /at year's heavy accumulation. 

TANANA-CHENA Drainage 


The snowpack remains well above normal with upper reaches of the Tanana 
receiving slightly above average snowfall during the past month. The 
Chena and Salcha watersheds received about normal snowfall and the 
streamflow forecasts remain unchanged from last month. The volume of 
runoff during Hay and June is expected to be 164 percent of average in 
the Chena river and 145 percent of normal in the Salcha which compares 
to last year's flow from both rivers of 150 percent of average. 

MATANUSKA-SUSITNA-COPPER Drainage 


Most snow courses in this area remain at record levels and above average 
snowfall was received on the upper reaches of the Matanuska and Copper 
rivers during March. Snowmelt runoff in these areas will be above normal. 

COOK INLET 


Near normal additions to the snowpack were received during March in most 
areas and the snowpack remains above normal. Snowmelt runoff will be 
above average from most streams draining into upper Cook Inlet. 

SOUTHEASTERN ALASKA 


Snow courses in the Snettisham area continue to measure at much above 
average levels. All April 1 measurements are the heaviest recorded 
since these courses were established in 1555. Three new snow courses 
were established near Ketchikan. At 200: ~ . at elevation a snov; depth 
of 147 inches with 65.0 inches water content was measured which is 
presumed to be above normal for the April I period.
