This information paper documents the methods and procedures used in the construction of probability criteria curves. Weighted criteria are used to assess the impacts of altered streamflow regimes on a stream habitat. They are developed primarily for those habitat parameters most closely related to stream hydraulics: depth, velocity, substrate, and temperature. Guidelines for data collection, analysis and curve development are discussed.
