      Created Date: 3/27/ AM. Information on low-flow characteristics of streams is essential for the management of water resources. This report provides equations for estimating the 1-, 7-, and day mean low flows for a recurrence interval of 10 years and the harmonic-mean flow at ungaged, unregulated stream sites in Indiana. These equations were developed using the low-.

Multiple regression analyses were used to determine the best predictive relations for each of the streamflow characteristic; separate relations were developed for each of four.

Provide regression equations for estimating floods on natural-flow (unregulated) streams. Provide a method for improving the flood estimate at gaged sites. Provide illustrative examples of applying the flood-estiirating technique. Frequently, streamflow records are insufficient or else do not exist at the site where information is desired.

An estimate of a river's natural flow regime is useful for water resource planning and ecosystem rehabilitation by providing insight into the predisturbance form and function of a river.

The natural flow regime of most rivers has been perturbed by development during the 20th century and in some cases, before stream gaging began. The suggested outcomes from Phase 1 will then be used as a basis for the development of new techniques for flood estimation in ungauged small catchments (Phase 2).

The findings of the report and its recommendations (Phase 1) will be used by all hydrologists and engineers requiring flood estimates for small catchments.
