Water Resources Data—Missouri, Water Year 2005

link to the Missouri Water Science Center home page in the shape of the state of Missouri.    Prepared in cooperation with the State of Missouri and with other agencies
   By:  H.S. Hauck and T.H. Harris



The U.S. Geological Survey, Missouri Water Science Center, in cooperation with local, State, and Federal agencies and organizations, obtains a large quantity of data pertaining to the water resources of Missouri each water year (Oc-tober 1 to September 30). These data, accumulated during the water years, constitute a valuable data base for devel-oping an improved understanding of the water resources of Missouri.

Water-resources data for the 2005 water year for Missouri consist of records of stage, discharge, and water quality of streams; elevation, contents, and water quality of lakes and reservoirs. This volume contains discharge records for 177 surface-water gaging stations; gage height at 6 surface-water gaging stations; elevation at 13 lakes and res-ervoirs; water quality at 97 sampling stations (including 2 lakes); data for 39 crest-stage stations; data for 6 water-quality partial-record stations; and water-level records for 8 ground-water monitoring wells.
