Streamflow data have been collected at the Priest River Experimental Forest (PREF) since 1939. A number of different devices have been used over the years to record these data, ranging from mechanical strip charts to electronic water level sensors connected to electronic data loggers. This resulted in a variety of formats ranging from undigitized strip charts, handwritten tabular data sheets, digitized printed records and several electronic formats which are now in a common electronic format. Streamflow data from the Benton Dam gauging station were integrated to provide daily average flow from 1955 through present and monthly average flow from 1939 through present.
