LITTLE WASHITA RIVER STREAM GAGE DATA FOR SGP97 The stream gage data described herein are contributed by the Agricultural Research Service, Grazinglands Research Laboratory, El Reno, OK in cooperation with the United States Geological Survey and the Oklahoma Water Resources Board. The data for the SGP97 period (June, July and August) is provided for the 7 Stream gaging stations in the Little Washita River Watershed. A description of the data and its format is given below.

The data is located at the following FTP address:

Each the above directory contains 7 data files that are organized by station.  The last four digits of each file name represent a portion of the USGS station number; the file name extension signifies whether the file is a stream gaging station or a pond discharge station. The LAT.- LONG. coordinates of each station are given in the table below and the approximate location is shown on a map of the Little Washita River Watershed. The contents and organization of each file is described below.
