StreamStats for South Carolina: A multipurpose water-resources web application

November 1, 2018

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) developed the South Carolina StreamStats application in cooperation with the South Carolina Department of Transportation. StreamStats ( is a map-based web application that provides analytical tools useful for water-resources planning and management and many engineering purposes. The web application delineates drainage areas at user-selected sites on South Carolina streams, generates basin characteristics, and, where appropriate, estimates peak-flow statistics for the selected sites. StreamStats users also can obtain published flow statistics for USGS streamgages, such as peak flow, low flow, and daily mean flow durations.
