Water Resources Data Texas Water Year 2004

Volume 3. San Jacinto River Basin, Brazos River Basin, San Bernard River Basin, and Intervening Coastal Basins

Water Data Report TX-04-3

By S.C. Aragon Long, B.D. Reece, D.R. Eames

Abstract: Water-resources data for the 2004 water year for Texas are presented in six volumes, and consist of records of stage, discharge, and water quality of streams and canals; stage, contents, and water quality of lakes and reservoirs; and water levels and water quality of ground-water wells. Volume 3 contains records for water discharge at 92 gaging stations; stage only at 6 gaging stations; elevation at 27 lakes and reservoirs; content at 6 lakes and reservoirs; and water quality at 33 gaging stations. Also included are data for 33 partial-record stations comprised of 15 flood-hydrograph, 8 low-flow, and 10 crest-stage stations. Also included are lists of discontinued surface-water discharge or stage-only stations and discontinued surface-water-quality stations. Additional water data were collected at various sites, not part of the systematic data-collection program, and are published as miscellaneous measurements. These data represent that part of the National Water Data System operated by the U.S. Geological Survey and cooperating Federal, State, and local agencies in Texas. Records for a few pertinent stations in the bordering States also are included.

Choosing The Proper Volume: The 2004 water resources data were published in
six volumes.  Volumes 1 through 5 focus on streamflow and water-quality data within
a specific basin or group of basins.  Volume 6 contains all published ground-water
data.  To assist you in downloading the proper volume, we have provided the
following resources:
Volumes 1 - 5 listing by station identification number
Volumes 1 - 5 listing by station name
