Topic Flow: Klamath River (3) at Orleans 1928-2002
Caption:  This chart displays the hydrograph by water year in cubic feet per second for the main stem of the Klamath River at Orleans as taken from USGS stream gauge flow measurements. The water year first shown above is for 1928. Note that patterns of power peaking at Copco Dam are reflected in flow fluctuations at Orleans during summer low flow conditions. The convention for water years is to begin them on October 1 of the previous calendar year so the 1928 water year began on October 1, 1927. You may call up any water year by clicking on Chart Table, selecting the find a record tool (magnifying glass symbol), and choosing the beginning date of a water year (ie.10/1/50). Return to the Chart and hit the green recycle button on the top, right hand corner of the screen. The Y axis of the graph may vary depending on the magnitude of the flows in any given year.
