The nation's streams showed good recovery during the 1982 water year, rebounding from a dry 1981 with almost the whole country showing normal to above-normal streamflow conditions, according to a year-end check on the nation's water resources by the U.S. Geological Survey.
USGS hydrologists said that for the 1982 water year, the nation's overall water picture was in good shape, noting in particular that the combined flow of the nation's ‘Big Five’ rivers (Mississippi, St. Lawrence, Columbia, Ohio, and Missouri) averaged 12% above normal for the year.
