Abstract

Statistics of monthly minimum flows are presented for 129 streamflow stations for each month of the year. Flow statistics provided are the log-Pearson Type III distribution. The probable magnitude of average standard errors due to time-sampling bias is tabulated. The average standard errors were found to be similar over a wide area comprising approximately the northern two-thirds of the State. In this area, the average standard error of estimate for a low-flow statistic with a recurrence interval of 20 years and estimated on the basis of 10 years of record is about 17%. In the southern third of the State, the average standard errors were found to lie in a narrow range, but were significantly greater than in the north. In the southern area, the average standard error of estimate for a low flow statistic with a recurrence interval of 20 years and estimated on the basis of 10 years of record is about 40%. (USGS)
