1. Base flow (sustaining flow, normal flow, ordinary flow, groundwater flow)
The portion of the stream discharge that is derived from natural storage (e.g., groundwater outflow and the draining of large lakes and swamps or other source outside the net rainfall that creates surface runoff); discharge sustained in a stream channel, not as a result of direct runoff and without the effects of regulation, diversion, or other works of man.
