Abstract:

Streamfiow and water-quality data were collected for three major tributaries to Reelfoot Lake, in West Tennessee, for the period October 1987 through March 1988. The data are presented in graphs and tables. Mean daily discharge data were collected at one site each in the drainage basins of North Reelfoot Creek, South Reel foot Creek, and Running Slough. Daily mean suspended- sediment concentration data were collected at a site in the North Reel foot Creek basin. Water-quality samples were collected during storm events at the same locations that daily mean streamflow data were collected. Water-quality samples were analyzed for concentrations of nutrients and triazine herbicides. Water temperature and specific conductance were measured at the time that samples were collected.
