Abstract

The Iowa River in the vicinity of Iowa City (Fig. 1.) is a mature stream which meanders over the Kansan and Iowa till plains in its course to the Mississippi River. The river, gathering water and sediment from the 3,230 square miles of the drainage basin which lies up stream from Iowa City, flows by as a muddy stream with an average discharge of 1,432 cubic feet per second (Crawford, 1942). Although sometimes heavily charged with sediment, it is on the whole not a heavy suspended sediment carrier as the average concentration of sediment in parts per million over a three year period as tested at Iowa City was 674 (Lane, 1945).
