More accurate data on runoff from small watersheds in agricultural areas are required for engineering designs of water-controlling structures and for the allocation of water rights within a small drainage basin. Watersheds larger than twenty square miles have received considerable attention by re search workers and agencies engaged in the development of water supplies. Forsaith (3) determined probable run off rates for a small watershed based on data from large watersheds. Little is known about the hydrology of small watersheds in the semiarid region of Western Canada. Generally, flow re cords for large areas are adjusted to produce design data for small drainage basins. A project to study the hydrology of a small watershed in the semiarid region of Southeastern Saskatchewan was initiated in 1951 to provide information on the rate and volume of runoff. This paper presents results for the period 1951 to 1964.
