Low-Flow Streamgage Network In Ohio

Science Center Objects

Data on low-flow characteristics are used by water-resource managers for a variety of purposes, including water-supply planning, making decisions about wastewater-discharge and water-withdrawal permits, and evaluating instream-flow requirements. The Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Water Science Center collects low-flow data throughout Ohio to expand the base of available information. The Ohio low-flow network consists of both continuous-record streamflow sites and sites where streamflow is measured only during low-flow periods.
