    One of the many duties of the Forest Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture is the investigation of watershed management. A phase of this subject is the measurement of the flow of mountain streams, which varies through a wide range. To measure and record these varying quantities, a type of gaging station, which combines a flume and two broad-crested weirs, has been developed at the Rocky Mountain Forest and Range Experiment Station at Fort Collins, Colorado. Mr. Wilm discusses the accuracy with which extremes of flow in flashy mountain streams may be measured by this type of installation.
