Water was generally plentiful in much of the nation during the 1984 water year, as reflected by the average to above-average streamflows for the 12-month period at 93% of the key index stream-gaging stations acrosi the country, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). USGS hydrologists said that for the 174 key stations reporting information during the water year, 53% (92 stations) reported flows that were well above average (within the highest 25% of historic record), 40% (70 stations) reported average flows, and only 7% (12 stations) reported streamflow that was well below average (within the lowest 25% of record).
