Load and Trends Results Through Water Year 2015

Science Center Objects

Changes in nitrogen, phosphorus, and suspended-sediment loads in rivers across the Chesapeake Bay watershed have been calculated using monitoring data from the nine Chesapeake Bay River Input Monitoring (RIM) stations.  

These results are used to help assess efforts to decrease nutrient and sediment loads being delivered to the bay.  Additional informatin is available through this USGS Website in order to provide the State, Federal, and local partners, as well as the general public, ready to access a wide range of data for nutrient and seiment conditions across the Chesapeake Bay watershed.  

  1. Annual loads delivered directly to the tidal waters as measured at the River Input Monitoring (RIM) statins, and 
  2. Trends in loads at the RIM stations.
