The purpose of this survey is to identify and describe the state and federal programs for the collection of data on the water resources of Iowa and the data holdings of the collecting agencies. The survey is limited to the measurement, inventory, and monitoring programs currently operated on a routine basis. Since the programs, collection networks, and data holdings are described as they currently exist, some of the information in this report will necessarily be outdated in the future as programs are modified and new data become available. Historical changes, for example, in locations of collection sites or discontinued programs, are not documented. Special purpose, short term data collection activities have generated considerable data about the water resources of the state, but no attempt has been made to survey these special projects.
