Water Resources Data for Oregon, Water Year 2005

By Thomas A. Herrett, Glen W. Hess, Marc A. Stewart, Gregory P. Ruppert, and Mary-Lorraine Courts

Water Data Report OR-05-1

Prepared in cooperation with Federal, State, local, and Tribal agencies


The annual Oregon water data report is one of a series of annual reports that document hydrologic data gathered from the U.S. Geological Survey's surface- and ground-water data-collection networks in each State, Puerto Rico, and the Trust Territories. These records of streamflow, ground-water levels, and water quality provide the hydrologic information needed by State, local, Tribal, and Federal agencies and the private sector for developing and managing our Nation's land and water resources.

This report contains water year 2005 data for both surface and ground water in Oregon, including discharge records for 207 streamflow-gaging stations, 65 partial-record or miscellaneous streamflow stations, and 9 crest-stage partial-record streamflow stations; stage-only records for 6 gaging stations; stage and content records for 12 lakes and reservoirs; water-quality records for 129 streamflow-gaging stations and 1 atmospheric deposition station; and ground-water levels for 12 observation wells.
