This report summarizes the time-of-travel of solutes information for Mississippi streams that is available in the files at the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality, Office of Pollution Control. The time-of-travel information was tabulated for 112 miles of stream reaches in eight of the ten major drainage basins in the State. The data were collected during studies conducted from 1981 through 1998. Estimation of time-of-travel of solutes is important for environmental studies of streams and may be critical in the event of accidental or other spills of contaminants into a waterway.
