A six year study was conducted to determine the recharge area for the four major springs in the Bullpasture Gorge, West-Central Virginia. During this study, a total of 22 individual sink-to-spring dye tracing and 7 internal traces to the Butler Cave-Skinking Creek System were conducted. These enabled the determination of the spring recharge boundaries, which led to interesting observations of the interrelations between the basins and the spring flow characteristics. Included are descriptions of change in the flow regimes under flood and base flow conditions.
