Summary

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with DuPage County Stormwater Management Department, maintains a watershed data management (WDM) database of hourly meteorological and hydrologic data for use in a near real-time streamflow simulation system. These data are stored daily in the WDM database by USGS staff and are initially provisional and subject to change due to periodic equipment malfunctions and/or weather related issues. This system is used for the management and operation of reservoirs and other flood-control structures in the West Branch DuPage River (WBDR) watershed in DuPage County, Illinois. The WDM database is updated with quality-assured and quality-controlled (QA/QC) meteorological and hydrologic data for [...]
