Hydrologic Benchmark Network

Project Description
The Hydrologic Benchmark Network (HBN) was established in 1963
to provide long-term measurements of streamflow and water
quality in areas that are minimally affected by human
activities. These data were to be used to study time trends and
to serve as controls for separating natural from artificial
changes in other streams. The network has consisted of as many
as 58 drainage basins in 39 States.
