Abstract Volume 1.

Water resources data for Montana for the 2004 water year, volumes 1 and 2, consist of records of 
stage, discharge, and water quality of streams; stage, contents, and water quality of lakes and 
reservoirs; and water levels in wells. This volume contains discharge records for 134 
streamflow-gaging stations; stage or content records for 18 lakes and reservoirs; and 
water-quality records for 66 streamflow stations (34 ungaged), and 13 ground-water wells. 
Additional water year 2004 data collected at crest-stage gage and miscellaneous-measurement 
sites were collected but are not published in this report. These data are stored within 
the District office files in Helena and are available on request. These data represent 
part of the National Water Data System operated by the U.S. Geological Survey and 
cooperating State and Federal agencies in Montana.

Abstract Volume 2.

Water resources data for Montana for the 2004 water year, volumes 1 and 2, consist of records of 
stage, discharge, and water quality of streams; stage, contents, and water quality of lakes and 
reservoirs; and water levels in wells. This volume contains discharge records for 119 
streamflow-gaging stations; stage or content records for 21 lakes and reservoirs; and 
water-quality records for 69 streamflow stations (17 ungaged), and 3 lake sites; water-level 
records for 51 observation wells; and precipitation and water-quality records for 2 
atmospheric-deposition stations. Additional water year 2004 data collected at crest-stage 
gage and miscellaneous-measurement sites were collected but are not published in this report. 
These data are stored within the District office files in Helena and are available on request. 
These data represent part of the National Water Data System operated by the U.S. Geological 
Survey and cooperating State and Federal agencies in Montana.
