Abstract

A compilation of streamflow and suspended-sediment data collected from October 1, 1982, to September 30, 1983, at seven gaging stations in the James River basin downstream from Forestburg, South Dakota, is presented in tabular and graphic form. Three of the gaging stations are on the main stem and four are on tributary streams. These are the results from the second year of a two-year study in cooperation with the Lower James Conservancy Sub-District. The data listed in the tables and figures include location, a summary of the streamflow for the period of record, tables listing the daily streamflow, mean suspended-sediment concentration, and suspended-sediment discharge; and figures showing the daily streamflow, mean suspended-sediment concentration and suspended-sediment discharge for each gaging station. Sandbars are developing in the river and this data is to be used in studies analyzing sources of the sediment and tributary sediment loads relative to those carried by the main stem. (USGS)
