This resource contains a Jupyter Notebook that connects to a hydrologic data web service, downloads hydrologic data, performs some statistical analysis, and visualizes the results. The purpose of this notebook is to provide a simple method for reproducing visualizations of USGS 15-minute discharge data. With editable parameters for USGS siteID and time interval, the notebook can quickly be modified to display results from the desired USGS site and measurement period.

In summary, the code in the Notebook performs the following tasks:
1) Connect to the USGS WaterOneFlow web service
2) Based on SiteID and begin/end date parameters, 15-minute discharge data is downloaded.
3) Resample 15-minute data to daily data while also calculating max, min, and avg values for the day
4) Plot the daily max, daily min, daily avg, and raw 15-minute discharge data on a single plot for comparison,
