Springflow is computed based on gage height record of only the westernmost of the two springs and monthly measurements of both springs. The westernmost spring is located west of River Road and flows west in one channel to Elm Creek. The second spring is located east of River Road and flows east directly into Guadalupe River, usually in several channels. The westernmost spring emerges at a lower elevation and will continue to flow after flow has stopped at the second spring.
