Abstract

Low-flow characteristics of streams in the Trempealeau-Black River basin, Wis., include estimates of low-flow frequency and flow duration at 9 gaging stations; low-flow frequency characteristics at 20 low-flow partial-record stations and 41 miscellaneous sites; and a list of base-flow discharge measurements and low-flow characteristics at 117 miscellaneous sites with one or two discharge measurements. 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 annual minimum 7-day mean flow below which the flow will fall on the average of once in 2 years and once in 10 years.
