This report is one of a series of 37 reports presenting records of stage and discharge
of streams, and of stage and contents of lakes and reservoirs in the United States during
the 1966-70 water years; it contains the records for gaging stations and partial-record
stations in the Snake River Basin.
Since 1888, when the U.S. Geological Survey first studied streamflow in relation
to problems of irrigation, similar records have been obtained at more than 19,500
gaging stations in the 50 States. On September 30, 1970, the Geological Survey and
cooperating organizations were maintaining 10,000 gaging stations. Partial-record
stations for low flow or for floodflow have been operated at many other points.
