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 public and other cooperators for doing similar streamflow simulations or meteorological analyses.
