This is the fourth annual compilation of data from the National Water Quality Network of the Public Health Service. Again the data have revealed some very interesting findings which can be usefully applied to facilitate water quality evaluation. As in each of the years the Network has functioned, an increasing number of State and other non-Federal agencies have taken an active interest in the field of water quality measurement. This is directly attributable to the mounting need for nationwide conservation of water resources. Our own Network was increased from 71 to 93 stations during this data year, and continual expansion is planned toward a goal of 300 stations.
