Subject:  REPORTS AND STATISTICS - Scheduled dates for 
            completion of annual water-supply papers

     The Branch is making good progress in reducing delays in
publication of annual reports.  Offset typing for the 1956 
water year is now proceeding but we should be preparing the 
1957 reports.  We believe it will be possible to achieve 
publication of our reports on a satisfactory time schedule 
with the cooperation of the district offices.

     Records for chemical analyses, water temperatures, and
sediment concentrations should be in the Washington office no
later and preferably less than 18 months after the completion 
of the water year.

   Records for:    Should be in Washington by:  Printed by:

  Sept. 30, 1956           March 1958         May 1959
   "     "  1957             "   1959          "  1960
   "     "  1958             "   1960          "  1961
   "     "  1959             "   1961          "  1962
   "     "  1960             "   1962          "  1964

     In order to maintain this schedule, we must prepare for
publication 7 volumes a year.

     With Lincoln preparing Volume II, parts 5 and 6, 
Raleigh's Flex-o-writer project, and the district offices 
submitting their records promptly, this can be accomplished.


     The attached table shows the final dates that records 
should be in Washington and the dates we have tentatively 
scheduled through July 1962 for completion (delivery to 
Section of Texts) of all volumes.  Most schedules established 
by your latest "Data Compilation" quarterly reports will meet 
the suggested submission dates.  When records are completed 
prior to these dates they will still be welcomed and handled 
as expeditiously as possible. Delays beyond these submission 
dates should be avoided.
