USGS Ohio Water Resources Data, Water Year 2005

Prepared in cooperation with the State of Ohio and with other agencies

by J.P. Mangus and S.R. Frum

 

Abstract

Water-resources data for the 2005 water year for Ohio consist of records of stage, discharge, and water quality of streams; stage and contents of lakes and reservoirs; and water levels and water quality of ground-water wells. This report, in two volumes, contains records for water discharge at 142 gaging stations and various partial-record sites; water levels at 321 observation wells and 38 crest-stage gages; and water quality at 18 gaging stations, 38 observation wells, and various partial-record sites. Also included are data from miscellaneous and synoptic sites. Additional water data were collected at various sites not involved in the systematic data-collection program and are published as miscellaneous measurements and analyses. These data represent that part of the National Water Information System collected by the U.S. Geological Survey and cooperating Federal, State, and local agencies in Ohio.


To view or print the PDF files, you will need Adobe  Adobe Acrobat Reader®, version 4.0 or higher. The reports also are available on CD-ROM, and a copy may be obtained by contacting the  Information Officer, (614) 430-7700.
