Abstract

Low-flow characteristics of streams in the Pecatonica-Sugar River basin in Wisconsin are presented in tables. Included are estimates of low-flow frequency and flow duration at 11 gaging stations; low-flow frequency characteristics at 25 low-flow partial-record stations and 63 miscellaneous sites; and a list of base-flow discharge measurements at 160 miscellaneous sites. Equations are provided to estimate low-flow characteristics at sites without discharge measurements and at sites where one base-flow discharge measurement is available. The equations were determined from multiple-regression analyses that related low-flow characteristics at gaging stations and low-flow partial-record stations to basin characteristics. The standard error of estimate is provided for each method of estimating the low-flow characteristics. Standard error provides the user with the expected degree of accuracy for each method.
