Summary

Floods can cause water-quality problems because of the large amounts of contaminants (sediment, nutrients, pesticides, and bacteria) that can be transported by floodwaters. during the flood on the Upper Mississippi River in 2001, water-quality and water-quality data were collected during near-record streamflow. This is the first time that samples for determining organic wastewater contaminants (pharmaceuticals, hormones, and industrial/household use compounds) and pesticide degradates have been collected during a flood of this magnitude.
