A study was conducted of nonurban, nonpoint sources of pollution in the Missouri Basin utilizing a unique, computer-based data system. The Data Bank contains extensive information on land use, soil, climate, water quality, and other parameters in the Missouri Basin. The current study was concerned with the adequacy of the Data Bank relative to development of nonpoint pollution models. Evaluation of information in the Data Bank yielded detailed land use and water quality profiles in the basin. The results show that the Data Bank is a useful base to depict the basinwide relations between various land uses and water quality. Regression equations of these relationships were developed for individual subbasins as well as for the entire basin. The regression equations, and the accompanying statistical analysis of significance, indicated that the water quality parameters NO3, BOD, and turbidity correlate well with land use on a basinwide basis. Other parameters, namely phosphorus, dissolved oxygen, and dissolved solids, did not correlate well with land use.
