Ecological flow (EFlow) statistics have been designated to characterize the magnitude, frequency, and duration of extreme high- and low-flows, the timing of seasonal flows, and the consistency of the historic regime. This Child Item contains a table of 178 EFlows for the time periods 1940-1969, 1970-1999, and 2000-2018, with absolute and percent change between periods, where applicable. Statistics were computed by Water Year (WY) for all 178 metrics and absolute and percent change were calculated by comparing metrics between combinations of two of the three time periods (1940-1969 and 1970-1999; 1940-1969 and 2000-2018; 1970-1999 and 2000-2018). Streamgages from the original dataset (n = 409) were excluded from...

These data were used for an analysis as part of a long-term project monitoring the biological communities, habitat, and water quality of the Fountain Creek Basin. Biology, habitat, and water quality data have been collected at 10 sites starting in 2003. These data include annual samples of aquatic invertebrate communities, fish communities, water quality, and quantitative riverine habitat collected from 2003-2016. These data will provide insight into trends in biological communities from 2003-2016 and relationships between biological communities and abiotic variables (antecedent streamflow, physical habitat, and water quality). This USGS data release contains all the input and output data and files necessary to...

The study will: 1) improve the integration of state water-use and water supply data; 2) develop a basin-wide surface-water hydrologic model capable of evaluating the impacts of land-use change, climate change, and changes in water demand; and 3) develop a scientific approach to defining relations between streamflow processes and the responses of aquatic organisms in tributary streams.

The Red River Basin of New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana was chosen as a focus area study (FAS) as part of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Water Census (NWC). The objective of the NWC is to place technical information and tools in the hands of stakeholders so that they can make decisions on water availability. With this set objective, the USGS Water Science Centers in New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana conducted a study of water use and availability for the Red River Basin to improve water withdrawal estimates and investigate trends in water resources under future climate conditions and increased water withdrawals using groundwater and surface-water models (MODFLOW...

The hydrologic regime of rivers and streams is a major determinant of habitat quality for fish and aquatic invertebrates. Long-term streamflow data were compiled and multidecadal streamflow trends and ecological flow (EFlow) statistics were calculated in support of the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Chesapeake Bay Science Initiative toward understanding fish habitat and health in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed (CBWS). A dataset comprising all streamgages (n = 409) reporting daily means of streamflow within the CBWS and remaining active as of September 30, 2018 (the end of Water Year [WY] 2018), independent of streamgage installation date, was retrieved from the USGS National Water Information System (NWIS)....

The Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint (ACF) Basin in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia has ongoing conflict over water use and availability. To address this issue, the USGS is conducting a three-year study to estimate water use, model surface and groundwater flow, and develop ecological flow relations.
Our mission is to provide , timely, reliable, impartial scientific information to our local, state, tribal, and federal partners so they can efficiently manage the water resources within their jurisdictions. Our data and research also help to protect the citizens of Idaho against floods, droughts, and other natural hydrologic hazards. Our science focuses on four basic areas of data collection and research: Surface water resources including rivers, lakes, and reservoirs Groundwater resources, both cold water and geothermal Water quality Water use and availability

The project will result in recommendations for a decision support platform that links coarse and fine scale tools and for improving the Colorado River Simulation System (CRSS) as the central analytical tool for basinwide water supply planning. The work will largely be accomplished by assembling an exceptionally qualified team in cross-disciplinary, water management decision support systems, in the CRSS, and in two finer scale water management decision supports within the basin and by responding to an advisory group oflead water management agencies.The project will immediately build on the Colorado River Basin Water Supply and Demand Study being led by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, will extend the interface between...
