Water resources data, Iowa, water year 2002--Volume 1. surface water—Mississippi River Basin

Water Data Report IA-02-1
Prepared in cooperation with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (Geological Survey Bureau), Iowa Department of Transportation, and with Federal agencies
By: , and 



Water resources data for Iowa for the 2002 water year consists of records of stage, discharge, and water quality of streams; stage, and/or contents of lakes and reservoirs; ground water levels and water quality of ground-water wells. This report volume contains discharge records for 95 gaging stations; stage or contents for 6 lakes and reservoirs and 7 streams; water quality for 1 stream-gaging station; sediment records for 10 stream-gaging stations; and precipitation record for 7 precipitation stations. Also included are data for 58 crest-stage partial record stations.
