Abstract

Water year 1986 was the second wettest on record in Iowa since records began being kept in the late 1800's. This report examines the spatial distribution of precipitation, the deviations from normal precipitation, and the effect of the excess precipitation on the water resources of Iowa. New high ground-water levels were established in water wells and new peak stages and new peak discharges were established at stream gaging stations.
