PRELIMINARY REPORT ON SMALL STREAMS FLOOD FREQUENCY IN MAINE

THIS PRELIMINARY REPORT IS LIMITED TO DATA COLLECTED EARLY IN A STUDY OF SMALL WATERSHEDS (1--50 SQ MI) IN MAINE. THE FINDINGS ARE LIMITED BY SHORT (6-YEAR) RUNOFF RECORDS, WHICH WERE USED TO DERIVE A FORMULA FOR PEAKS OF UP TO 10-YEAR FREQUENCY. THE BASIN CHARACTERISTICS REPRESENTED IN THE FORMULA ARE DRAINAGE AREA, CHANNEL SLOPE, CHANNEL LENGTH, STORAGE, AND FOREST COVER. THE FORMULA IS AN ADAPTATION OF AN EARLIER USGS METHOD LMITED TO LARGE WATERSHEDS. /FHWA/
