U.S. Geological Survey WDR-WI-04

By R.J. Waschbusch, D.L. Olson, S.B. Marsh, and P.A. Stark

This report is available as a pdf.


Water-resources data for the 2004 water year for Wisconsin include records of streamflow at gaging stations, partial-record stations, and miscellaneous sites, records of precipitation, and records of chemical, biological, and physical characteristics of surface water. In addition, water levels in observation wells are reported. These data were collected by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with State and local agencies and other Federal agencies in Wisconsin.
