See Fig. 1. It also contains the results of several special studies. These are is follows: the determination of the frequency of recurrence of peak discharges; the detention effect of the reservoir storage at Lake Bloomington on peak discharges; a progress report on the investigation of periods of low flow at Lake Bloomington to determine the frequency and seriousness of the droughts and to determine a method of obtaining accurate evaporation values for reservoirs.
