The report includes:

  • An example of calculations for the Strawberry River depicting storage curves and draft storage diagram
  • Six figures for draft storage relations for 2- and 5-year frequencies, related to the median annual minimum 7-day flow for streams in regions A, B, and C
  • A figure showing relation between storage requirements computed from gaging-station data and from draft-storage data
  • Map of average annual lake evaporation, in inches, for the period 1946-1955
  • Map of average annual precipitation, in inches, for the period 1933-1952
  • Map showing location of gaging stations and delineation of draft-storage regions
  • Fold out map showing average annual stream flow
  • A table depicting flow characteristics of selected Arkansas streams
