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.
StreamStats for Utah can be used to estimate the magnitude of peak flows under natural streamflow conditions at the 2-, 5-, 10-, 25-, 50-, 100-, 200-, and 500-year recurrence-intervals. The report below presents the equations used to estimate the flow statistics, describes the errors associated with the estimates, and describes the methods used to develop the equations and to measure the basin characteristics used in the equations. Users should familiarize themselves with the report before using StreamStats to obtain estimates of streamflow statistics for ungaged sites.

General information on the Interactive Map application, as well as specific sources and computation methods for basin characteristics are available here.
NOTE: Estimates of flow statistics from regression equations are not available for a portion of northwestern Utah that drains northward to the Snake River in Idaho using the Utah StreamStats application. The Idaho regression equations are considered more applicable in this area than the Utah equations. Idaho StreamStats can be used to obtain estimates of flow statistics from regression equations in this area.
