Abstract

Statistical summaries of streamflow data for selected stream-gaging sites presented in this report aid in appraising the hydrology of the upper Columbia River basin in Montana. Streamflow records are provided for 54 gaging stations for the period of record. Streamflow records for five gaging stations were compiled into separate periods related to changes in regulation after data collection commenced. The entire period of record, the period before regulation, and the period after regulation are presented for comparison. For each gaging station selected for this report, a brief description is given for station location, drainage area, period of record, revisions of previously published records, type and history of gages, regulation and diversions, and extremes of discharge. These data are followed by tables of monthly and annual flow statistics, flood-frequency data, low-flow and high-flow frequency data, and flow-duration information. (USGS)
