Statewide StreamStats Web Tool for Estimating Streamflow Statistics - Regression Equation Update

Knowledge and understanding of streamflow paths, expected flows and predicted extreme flows during droughts and floods for drainageways in our state is fundamental to habitat and wildlife preservation, and water supply and wastewater discharge. Nebraska's water resources are crucial to the livelihood and survival of its citizens and wildlife, therefore combined effmis of Nebraska's residents, agricultural community, private enterprise and local, state and federal government agencies are essential to the preservation and protection of these water resources. This project focuses on the implementation of StreamStats, a nationwide effort by USGS to use streamgage data, topography and regression equations to provide flow data to the general public for user-selected drainageways. The web-based platform will delineate drainage basins and compute watershed characteristics at user-selected gaged or ungaged stream locations. This web tool will be used by local, state and federal government agencies and private consultants for floodplain management, wetland restoration and mitigation projects, and in the analysis and design of culverts, bridges, stormwater treatment facilities, detention ponds, aquatic organism passage structures and other water resources projects. To implement StreamStats in Nebraska, the geographic information system framework for the web-implementation needs to be built and gage information will be analyzed. .
