JENNIFER MCGEE (PE, CFM, GSP Water Resources Engineer) - Automating PeakFQ Stream Gage Analysis with Microsoft’s Power Automate Desktop
PeakFQ is a desktop application developed by the US Geological Survey (USGS) to complete gage analysis using stream peak flow data. While PeakFQ is easy to use and the necessary data is freely available, the full workflow for CNMS C2 Gage Analysis validation checks has numerous steps that are time consuming to complete manually. To improve process efficiency, we automated it with Microsoft’s Power Automate for Desktop. The flow downloads the files, runs the analysis, reads the results, and saves everything in an Excel table for final evaluation. The workflow transforms hours of work to just minutes!
