Description

Provides wrapper to turn the DLY_LEVELS table in HYDAT into a tidy data frame. The primary value returned by this function is discharge. station_number and prov_terr_state_loc can both be supplied. If both are omitted all values from the hy_stations table are returned. That is a large vector for hy_daily_levels.
