Surface water records of Missouri, 1964

January 1, 1966

The quality-of-water investigations of the U.S. Geological Survey are concerned with the chemical and physical characteristics of surface and ground water supplies of the Nation. The basic records for the 1964 water year for quality of surface waters within the State of Missouri are given in this report. The data were collected and computed by the Water Resources Division of the U.S. Geological Survey, under the direction of John H. Hubble, district chemist.

The Geological Survey began publishing annual basic records of chemical quality, water temperatures, and suspended sediment in 1941 in the water-supply-paper series, "Quality of Surface Waters of the United States." The records for Missouri were first published in this series in 1948 when the records were being published in two volumes for the entire country. Beginning in 1950, the records were published in four volumes. Since 1959 these records have been published in five volumes; each volume covering an area where boundaries coincide with those of certain natural drainage areas. The records for Missouri are contained in Parts 5-6, 7 and 8 of the water-supply series. These publications are available in most major public libraries, (See "Water-Supply Papers" p. 11).

Distribution of this report is limited and it is primarily for local and immediate use. The records will be published in the Geological Survey water-supply papers at 5-year intervals, The first compilation will cover only the years 1964 and 1965.
