Deep groundwater aquifers QUIZ QUESTION #21: Clearing a forest and building a large shopping mall and parking lot in the upper portion of a small watershed is likely to? Increase quickflow, reduce baseflow, reduce average volume of water in the stream QUIZ QUESTION #22: Which of the following will influence flood behavior in a watershed? Amount of paved area in the watershed, direction of storm movement across the watershed, shape of the watershed, and the existing soil moisture conditions
