  • 2Discharge is an Estimate
  • 6Discharge affected by Regulation or Diversion
  • 8Discharge actually greater than indicated value

 

Annual Peak Flows:

 

Flood Frequency:

Flood frequency analyses for regulated streams or for streams with diversions that will affect peak flow are beyond the scope of this project.  Peak flows on these types of streams are dependent on variable operations associated with upstream reservoirs or diversions.
