Death Valley National Park, located in the Great Basin of the western United States, is one of the hottest and driest areas of the United States. The harsh environment supports a unique assemblage of aquatic plant and animal species found nowhere else in the world. In an area where rainfall is scarce, these species are largely sustained by groundwater-fed springs that originate from recharge in either local or distant mountains. The National Park Service is concerned that groundwater development, both locally and within the regional flow system, may affect species and aquatic habitats associated with springs within the park. Scientists from a variety of disciplines are working to provide information that can help resource managers better understand and protect these rare groundwater-dependent habitats and species.
