Stream discharge is collected on three small watersheds in the Fox Creek drainage within the City of Portland's Bull Run Municipal Watershed in the northwestern Oregon Cascades. Stream discharge data collection was started in October 1958 and discontinued in April 1988 on all three watersheds. Watersheds 1 and 3 were harvested from 1969 to 1972 in patch cuts encompassing 25 percent of each watershed, and Watershed 2 was left unlogged as a control watershed. High resolution temporal data is provided as well as daily, monthly and annual summary data. Streamflow data by sampling intervals are also provided from 1970 to 1981 when stream water chemistry data were being collected.

5Instantaneous and total discharge for requested time intervals (Oct 1 1957 - Apr 26 1988)METADATADATA
This is the interactive FLOW program which allows downloads of all Fox Creek small watersheds for any time period at user-specified time intervals. Rating equations can also be displayed.
