The results are statistically significant, and the stability of the regression models is verified using independent data. The reconstructions are more reliable for low flow events; a finding which is potentially useful for water resource planning. The reconstructions indicate a possible increase in the frequency of extreme low flows over the period 1755-1859, compared to 1860-1979, which although not of conclusive statistical significance, warrants further investigation.
