Abstract

Low-flow characteristics of small streams at 278 sites in 32 basins in Wisconsin which are being considered for work under Public Law 566 are presented. The low-flow characteristics are the annual minimum 7-day mean flow below which the flow will fall on the average of once in 10 years and the annual minimum 7-day mean flow below which the flow will fall on the average of once in 2 years. The low-flow characteristics at these sites were determined by correlating base-flow measurements at the ungaged sites to the concurrent daily mean flow at continuous-record gaging stations in the area. The statewide average of the accuracy determined by the standard error of estimate for the 10-year low flow, based on three base-flow measurements, is 45 percent but differs within the State.
