Cache River National Wildlife Refuge Water Resource Inventory and Assessment

This Water Resource Inventory and Assessment (WRIA) for Cache 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 All of this information was compiled from publicly available documents (e.g., published and unpublished research reports), databases (e.g., websites maintained by government agencies, academic institutions, and non-governmental organizations), and geospatial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 threats, needs, and issues of concern identified in this assessment are anthropogenic and environmental stressors occurring within the Cache River Basin (including the Cache River and Bayou DeView) and, to some degree, influences from the White River, which is located at the southern portion of the refuge. These areas together comprise the Region of Hydrologic Influence (RHI) for Cache River NWR. For the purposes of this assessment, the RHI was defined as the Cache subbasin (08020302); the Raft Creek-White River watershed (0802030105), which extends along the White River upstream from the confluence of the White and Cache Rivers; and the Roc Roe Bayou-White River subwatershed (080203030502), which is downstream of the confluence along the White River and contains the southernmost portion of the refuge approved acquisition boundary. Water levels and conditions on the White River have a direct effect on the lower Cache River hydrology. Thus, in order to inventory data which characterize these hydrologic relationships, the two smaller hydrologic units were included with the Cache subbasin to define the RHI for the refuge.
