Summary

IMPORTANT NOTE: On September 27, 2016, a formatting error in these data was discovered. This error involves extra spaces in certain lines of the .txt data files, which may cause an error in the interpretation of the data values or data-source flags when read by other software. This error has been corrected in the WY 2015 data which can be accessed from this link. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with DuPage County, Illinois, maintains a Watershed Data Management (WDM) database consisting of hourly dewpoint temperature, air temperature, solar radiation, wind speed data based on the data collected at the Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) and hourly potential evapotranspiration computed from them using the computer program [...]

Purpose

The five data sets in this database may be used as input to the Hydrological Simulation Program-FORTRAN (HSPF) model or other similar rainfall-runoff model for simulating streamflow in DuPage County and nearby areas in northeastern Illinois. This database is available to the public and other cooperators for doing similar streamflow simulations or meteorological analyses.
