…This investigation was made to determine the changes in quantity and quality of low flow in the reach of Hondo Creek that contributes recharge to the Edwards and associated limestones….

A determination of the gains and losses in a 29.5-mile reach of Hondo Creek near Hondo, Texas, was made on March 27-28, 1968. A net loss of 106 cfs (cubic feet per second) occurred in the reach (site 2 to site 8) that contributes recharge to the Edwards and associated limestones. These losses were greater than those that occurred during the previous low-flow investigation in April 1958. The quality of water showed a general improvement downstream except for sites on and downstream from Verde Creek.
