Asquith, W.H., and Harwell, G.R., 2018, A database of peak streamflow derived from interpretations of indirect measurements for a crest-stage gage network in Texas through water year 2015: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


In 2006, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the Texas Department of Transportation, began collecting annual and approximately quarterly-series peak streamflow data at streamflow-gaging stations in small- to medium-sized watersheds in central and western Texas, along with selected flood-hydrograph data at a subset of these stations. The data were primarily collected from a type of USGS streamflow-gaging station known as a crest-stage gage (CSG) station. The CSGs record peak stage, or maximum gage height (elevation of water surface above a local vertical datum), at the stations during storm events. Established and widely-used indirect methods of peak streamflow estimation, such as culvert-flow, slope-area, and flow-over-road [...]

The purpose of the data are to provide annual peak streamflow data for small- to medium-sized (sub square mile to about a few hundred square miles) natural watersheds in central and western Texas to improve existing regional regression equations and contribute to other regionalized statistical methods for peak streamflow estimation at ungaged locations.
