Instructions on How to Use the Archive Request Form
The Archive Request Form allows the users to view daily historical reservoir data residing in the HYDROMET database. The program allows the users the opportunity to view a data for specific time period.
The Bureau of Reclamation HYDROMET database stores all of the data in a WATER YEAR format. A water year begins on October 1st of any year and ends on September 30th of the following year, example - Water year 1997 includes data from October 1, 1996 through September 30, 1997. Keep this in mind when requesting data.
All data values must be input using CAPITAL letters.
Under Station Code, input the reservoir code for the state on interest. View a listing of all of the reservoir codes. TAB to the next box or move the CURSOR. Hitting the ENTER at this point will cause the program to malfunction and no data will be retrieved.
Under Parameter Code, input the parameter code(s) of interest separated by commas or leave it blank for all parameters. View a listing of all available parameter codes.
Under Water Year, type in the 4 digit water year or leave blank for the current year.
Under Time Period enter the time period of interest (i.e AUG1,SEP15) or blank for last five days or YEAR for wateryear summary: Once all the data has been placed into the appropriate columns, select the SUBMIT button and the data will be plotted.
