Abstract

The low-flow characteristics of Iowa streams are described by annual and seasonal low-flow frequency and duration data. Tabulated in this report are low-flow data collected at 135 gaging stations on Iowa streams, three on the Mississippi River, four on the Missour River, and 426 partial-record sites. The information contained in this report is based on all of the daily discharge records collected by the U.S. Geological Survey through the 1976 water year. Consideration is given to the regional aspects of low-flow characteristics by including regression equations to estimate the average discharge and generalized maps to estimate the 7-day, 2-year and 7-day, 10-year discharges at ungaged sites.
