Floods in the Skagit River basin, Washington

According to Indian tradition, floods of unusually great magnitude harassed the Skagit River basin about 1815 and 1856. The heights of these floods were not recorded at the time; so they are called historical floods.

At various places the water occurs under perched, unconfined, and confined conditions; at some places it occurs under all three conditions at different depths. Both...

The one year of recent record now available and the four years of record obtained during water years 1928-31 provide a...
