Abstract

Soldier Creek basin is a long, narrow basin encompassing an area of about 290 square miles almost directly north of Topeka, Kansas. A wide range of hydrologic data has been collected in the basin since the spring of 1964. These data include rainfall, stream discharge, sediment concentrations, chemical quality of water, and ground-water altitudes.

The data collection system consists of 7 recording streamflow stations, 5 recording rainfall stations, 51 non-recording rainfall stations, and 31 groundwater observation wells. Sediment and chemical quality of water samples were collected intermittently at selected sites.

A synopsis of the time and space distribution of rainfall and peak flow are provided in graphic and tabular form for selected events of rainfall and peak flow. Representative data concerning the chemical quality of water and the fluvial sediment also are included. Selected ground-water and seepage-investigation data are depicted graphically.
