Implementation of the U.S. Geological Survey's StreamStats Application for South Carolina Department of Transportation

This project will implement the United States Geological Survey (USGS) StreamStats web application in South Carolina. Implementation will include regression equations to estimate flood-frequency flows at rural ungaged locations (Feaster and others, 2009) and at urban and small, rural ungaged locations (Feaster and others, 2014) along with the basin characteristics needed to compute those estimates. The StreamStatsDB also will include basin characteristics and streamflow statistics published in these reports and in low-flow reports by Feaster and Guimaraes (2012), Guimaraes and Feaster (2010), Feaster and Guimaraes (2009) and Zalants (1991). Additionally, field measurements of historic bridge scour in South Carolina (Benedict, 2003; Benedict and Caldwell 2006, 2009) and USGS historic indirect flow measurements will be incorporated into StreamStats.
