Abstract

The measurement of the flow of the streams in California was begun by the State engineer in 1878, in accordance with the law requiring him "to investigate the problems of the irrigation of the plains; the condition and capacity of the great drainage lines of the State, and the improvement of the navigation of rivers." The work was restricted to a few localities in the Sacramento and San Joaquin River basins, the principal station being on the Sacramento at Collinsville.
