This report, prepared in cooperation with the ODNR Division of Water, provides data and methods to aid in the hydrologic design or evaluation of impounding reservoirs and side-channel reservoirs used for water supply in Ohio. Data from 117 streamflow-gauging stations throughout Ohio were analyzed by means of nonsequential-mass-curve-analysis techniques to develop relations between storage requirements, water demands, duration and frequency. Information is also provided on minimum runoff for selected durations and frequencies. Systematic record lengths for the streamflow-gauging stations ranged from about 10 to 75 years; however, in many cases, additional streamflow records were synthesized.
