Abstract : The purpose of this study is to investigate the magnitude frequency relationships of naturally occurring low flows on streams in New Hampshire to facilitate decision making in the management of water resources in the state. This project conducted a literature search to establish the availability of any regional low flow frequency studies that may have been performed for the State of New Hampshire, and identified existing water resource projects affecting low flows in the respective river basins. The report also included the development of a simple procedure for estimating low flow for natural (unregulated), ungaged streams in New Hampshire; past studies on low flow rates, and the development of a procedure to estimate low flows in ungaged watersheds in New Hampshire.
