Abstract

This report contains hydrologic data collected at Reelfoot Lake, Tennessee from May 1, 1984, through April 30, 1985. Continuous streamflow data were collected at four sites on the three major tributaries to Reelfoot Lake and at one site on the lake outflow channel. Daily rainfall and lake-stage were each collected at two sites on the lake shore. Additionally, suspended-sediment samples were collected by automatic samplers and also manually during equipment maintenance visits at three of the four tributary inflow sites. At these three inflow sites, samples of stream-bottom material were collected at low flow once during the study period and were analyzed to determine the concentration of various pesticides. Periodic observations of ground-water levels were made at 30 wells in the Reelfoot Lake basin. Monitoring sites and types of data collected at each site are listed. (USGS)
