Abstract

An evaluation of the streamflow data available in Kentucky was made to provide guidelines for planning future programs. The basic steps in the evaluation procedure were (1) definition of the long- term goals of the streamflow data program in quantitative form, (2) examination and analysis of all available data to determine which goals have already been met, and (3) consideration of alternate programs and techniques to meet the remaining objectives. It was found that many of the goals could be met by generalization of the data for gaged basins by regression analysis. This fact indicates that significant changes could be made in the present data program that would allow emphasis to be placed on attaining the goals that have not been met. A streamflow data program based on the guidelines developed in this study is proposed for the future.
