Abstract

The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Texas Water Development Board, began hydrologic studies in the Austin urban area in 1954. The objectives of this project are as follows:

1. To determine the effects of progressive urbanization on infiltration, rates of peak discharge, and rainfall-runoff relations in the Waller Creek watershed.

2. To provide rainfall-and-runoff data from the rural Wilbarger Creek watershed to be used for comparative purposes in determining the effects of existing and progressive urbanization in the Waller Creek watershed.

3. To provide applied research facilities for studies at the University of Texas at Austin.

The purpose of this report is to present rainfall-and-runoff data for the Waller Creek and Wilbarger Creek study areas for the 1971 water year (October 1, 1970, to September 30, 1971).

To facilitate the publication and distribution of this report at the earliest feasible time, certain material has been included that does not conform to the formal publication standards of the U.S. Geological Survey.
