This report presents data which are, in general, supplementary to those the surface-water investigations made in the past by the U. S. Geological Survey. Those have been essentially investigations of the operation of the many gaging stations on the Rogue River and tributaries.
The data presented were obtained from a detailed field investigation of the various #actors resulting from man-made structures that influence the quantity or regimen of the flow at the gaging stations. These factors include diversions from the stream, bypass channels carrying water around the gaging stations, return flow from irrigation or other projects, storage and release of flood waters, and other similar factors. Where feasible, the location, size, effect upon the streamflow periods of use, method of operation,, and similar information are. given. The information is divided into sections corresponding to areas determined by the location of gaging stations. An index of streamflow records is included.
A section dealing with the adequacy of available water-resources data and containing location and period of record also is included. This information is given in general terms only, and is portrayed mainly by maps and graphs.
