Interstate pollution data for this section of the Missouri River, prepared at the request of and in cooperation with the stream pollution control agencies, of Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota, are presented. Sewage and packing plant wastes from the Sioux City-South Sioux City area were found to dominate the pollution of the river, with several small towns contributing minor quantities to add to the total contamination. The data indicate that the tributary streams at their mouths generally carry very minor quantities of bacterial contamination.
