Water resources data for the 2005 water year for Idaho consists of records of stage, discharge, and water quality of streams; stage, contents, and water quality of lakes and reservoirs; discharge of irrigation diversions; and water levels and water quality of groundwater. The two volumes of this report contain discharge records for 204 stream-gaging stations and 9 irrigation diversions; stage only records for 5 stream-gaging stations; stage only for 6 lakes and reservoirs; contents only for 13 lakes and reservoirs; water-quality for 26 stream-gaging stations and partial record sites, 19 lakes sites, and 450 groundwater wells; and water levels for 465 observation network wells. Additional water data were collected at various sites not involved in the systematic data collection program and are published as miscellaneous measurements.

Volume 1 contains the surface-water and surface-water-quality records.

Volume 2 contains the ground-water and ground-water-quality records.

These data represent that part of the National Water Data System operated by the U.S. Geological Survey and cooperating State and Federal agencies in Idaho, adjacent States, and Canada.
