Koshkonong Creek, Starkweather Creek, Token Creek and Cherokee Marsh, Wingra Creek.

Ed note: mytopo.com shows two Murphy Creeks in the area. One flows into the west end of Lake Waubesa. The other, which flows out of the east end of Lake Wingra, appears to be called Wingra Creek locally, at least. I have decided to follow local usage.

Ed note regarding USGS data for Illinois. 
At 
http://waterdata.usgs.gov/il/nwis/current/?type=flow , 
USGS gauges for Illinois are sorted by county (not river), making it difficult to find gauge information for particular rivers. 
The following clickable map allows the user with knowledge of the state to select a location and see the corresponding graph, but I couldn’t figure out how to post here the corresponding link. 
http://waterwatch.usgs.gov/?m=real&r=il 
In short, the user will likely have to find the information on his/her own. 
ALLAN: Look at 
http://waterdata.usgs.gov/il/nwis/dv/?s ... r_cd=00060 

Ed note: Because the Illinois folder will not be opened soon, I prepared very few Information entries.
