Beta version 4 has arrived!
Beta version 4 is now available for most states on a trial basis, and version 3 remains available. Beta version 4 provides a single user interface (at http://streamstatsags.cr.usgs.gov/streamstats/) for all states that are implemented, rather than separate applications for each state, as in versions 2 and 3, and the user interface is more user friendly than previous versions. Information for user-selected ungaged sites currently cannot be obtained using beta version 4 for the States of Iowa, Indiana, North Carolina, and Oregon because of unique functionality for those states that is not yet implemented. Users are encouraged to provide comments and report bugs by use of the Help button on the interface, which also provides access to limited beta version 4 documentation. See below for additional information about versions both 3 and 4.
Please contact the StreamStats by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Vermont StreamStats incorporates statewide regression equations for estimating instantaneous peak flows with annual exceedance probabilities of 50, 20, 10, 4, 2, 1, 0.5, and 0.2 percent. These peak flows have recurrence intervals of 2, 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, 200, and 500 years, respectively. The report below documents the regression equations, the methods used to develop them and to measure the basin characteristics used in the equations, and the errors associated with estimates obtained from the equations. Users should familiarize themselves with this report before using StreamStats to obtain estimates of flows for ungaged sites in rural drainage basins.

General information on the Interactive Map application, as well as specific sources and computation methods for basin characteristics are available here.
Estimating peak-flow frequency statistics based on the flows at nearby streamgages:
This page previously provided special instructions for estimating peak-flow frequencies for ungaged sites based on the flows at nearby streamgages. The described estimation method relied on functionality that was only available in StreamStats version 2. That functionality is under development in version 3. The instructions will be updated when the needed functionality is made available in version 3.
