NewSimulated Runoff at many Location in the Methow River Basin, Washington

The spreadsheet that is available by clicking the link below is simulated daily runoff, in cubic feet per second, from the watershed model for 61 sites in the Methow River Basin, WA for water years 1988 through 2013. See the report with the title above for more information on the simulated runoff. A link to the report can be found by clicking on the "Publications and Products" tab above.

Climate Change

Now available to the public is a web-based database tool that provides water management stakeholders with the capability to create and download customized graphs, maps, and data retrievals of simulated hydraulic conditions in the Methow River basin, Washington, for combinations of five climate change models and three greenhouse gas scenarios (high, medium, and low). The online database is part of an integrated software system developed by the WAWSC for running series of rain-runoff simulations, processing model output, and providing the model output to the public.
