March streamflow


  • Anonymous


Streamflows during March were below normal along most of the Eastern Seaboard and in the southeastern and northwestern states. However, they were above normal in a wide band extending from Michigan southwest-ward into Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona (see map), according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

USGS hydrologists reported that stream-flows were about normal or above at 65% of the stream-measurement index stations in the United States. A record high flow was measured on the Colorado River in Utah, and the level of the Great Salt Lake reached its highest point in 108 years.
