March streamflow


  • Anonymous


Streamflow generally increased seasonally across the country during March, and snow-melt runoff pushed many western streams to well-above average flows, according to the regular month-end check on the nation's water resources by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Department of the Interior.

Of 172 USGS index stream-gauging stations surveyed during March, 65 (38%) recorded well-above average flows (within the highest 25% of long-term record), 91 stations (53%) recorded average flows, and 16 stations (9%) recorded well-be low average flows (within the lowest 25% of long-term record).
