Abstract: Watershed hydrologic and sedimentation investigations on the Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed in southwest Idaho were initiated in 1960. Major objectives of the watershed research program were: 1. To design, construct, and operate a network of precipitation, streamflow, and sediment measuring stations representative of extensive sagebrush rangeland areas; 2. To determine precipitation, streamflow, and sediment amounts and characteristics; and 3. To provide a data base for testing rangeland watershed hydrologic and productivity models. The streamflow measuring structures, and operational experience are described.
