Geonarrative: Feasibility of Developing a GIS-Based Hydraulic Modeling Tool for Stream Crossing Projects in Massachusetts

This interactive geonarrative presents information on how feasible it is to develop a GIS-based hydraulic modeling tool for preliminary culvert designs for stream crossings in Massachusetts.

Determining High Groundwater Levels in Massachusetts

A method (commonly referred to as the Frimpter method) was developed in early 1980’s to estimate probable high groundwater levels across Massachusetts. The map and table on the web page linked above provide information on wells in the Massachusetts Observation-Well Network which have been used as index wells.

Water-Quality Data Collection Sites in the Merrimack River Basin and its Major Tributaries

This interactive map displays the location of water-quality data-collection sites, the drainage area for the Merrimack River, and selected streams in the Merrimack River Basin.

Nitrogen Loading from Selected Long Island Sound Tributaries from 1995 to 2016

This dashboard application displays nitrogen concentrations and loads in selected Long Island Sound tributaries. 

Chloride Data for Streams in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island

View recent and historical chloride and specific conductance data for active water-quality monitoring stations on streams in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.

2018 Nor’easter Storm Events in Coastal New England

Dashboard presenting nor’easter storm events in coastal New England in January and March 2018.

January and March 2018 Nor'easters

Geonarrative about flood documentation and mapping of two large storm events in coastal Massachusetts.

New England Water Use in 2015

The New England Water Science Center has collected, reviewed, and aggregated water-withdrawal data in each of the six States every 5 years since 1950. The summary of the water-use compilation completed in 2015 is presented in this geonarrative.

Domestic Wells in the United States

Domestic wells provide drinking water supply for approximately 40 million people in the United States. Knowing the location of these wells, and the populations they serve, is important for identifying heavily used aquifers, locations susceptible to contamination, and populations potentially impacted by poor-quality groundwater. 

Herring River Water-Quality

The New England WSC geonarrative explores the availability of water-quality data collected by the Cape Cod National Seashore and U.S. Geological Survey in support of the Herring River restoration project. It highlights the development of the monitoring program since the 1980s and the recent publication of Cape Cod National Seashore data in a U.S. Geological Survey data release.
