The report lists major tributaries to the Salmon River and gives monthly and annual records of temperature, precipitation and discharge of the Salmon at various points. Apparently, no floods have been caused by rain runoff alone, but most are caused by a combination of heavy snow melt and rain runoff. The history of flooding in the Salmon basin is recounted and an appendix of 18 maps illustrates areas probably inundated during the Salmon's worst flood, which occurred in 1894. Costs of past floods are estimated and populations of small communities within the Salmon basin are given. Potential flood control storage sites are discussed, along with costs and benefits.
