Abstract

Low-flow characteristics of Wisconsin streams at sewage-treatment and industrial plants are presented. The low-flow characteristics are needed to implement water-quality standards for all surface waters of the State. Water-quality standards in Wisconsin are based on the annual minimum 7-day mean flow below which the flow will fall on the average of once in 10 years (Q7,10). Low-flow characteristics are included for streams at 397 sewage-treatment plants and 143 industrial plants in 30 river basins. The low-flow characteristics presented are the annual minimum 7-day mean flow below which the flow will fall on the average of once in 2 years (Q7,2) and the Q7,10. The Q7,2 values ranged from 0 to 3,770 cubic feet per second and Q7 ,10 values ranged from 0 to 2,790 cubic feet per second. (Woodard-USGS)
