The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with Oakland County, the Huron-Clinton Metropark Authority, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), and the Rouge Program Office, collected streamflow, water-quality, and ground-water-level data in watersheds across Oakland County during water years 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2004. Water years begin October 1 and end September 30.

This report presents water resources data used to produce a series of interpretive reports on the quantity and quality of water in Oakland County for Oakland County, Michigan. Some of these data have been published elsewhere, but are provided here in one report. This report has two main sections. The first section provides an overview of the methods used to collect the various types of data. The second section is a series of data tables containing ground-water-level data, synoptically measured stream-water-quality data, synoptically measured lake-water-quality data, and the results of a macroinvertebrate and habitat assessment.
