Crosswalk Table Between NHDPlus V2.1 and its Accompanying Watershed Boundary Dataset Snapshot of 12-Digit Hydrologic Units

A crosswalk table between NHDPlus version 2.1 flowlines (using the unique field COMID) and the Watershed Boundary Dataset (WBD) 12-digit-hydrologic units (HU-12) is provided for the 48 contiguous United States. The crosswalk table provides a WBD HU-12 assignment for every networked flowline in the NHDPlus. In this way, the network developed for navigation and modeling, NHDPlus,

Data collected at Pawtuckaway Beach in Nottingham, New Hampshire, 2015-2017, including data from Escherichia coli (bacteria) samples, and from USGS meteorological and water-quality stations

In the summer of 2014 at Pawtuckaway Beach at Pawtuckaway State Park in Nottingham New Hampshire, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) established a seasonal meteorological station (430508071091801) on the beach and a seasonal water-quality station (01073389) in Pawtuckaway Lake proximal to the swimming area. Data recorded at 15-minute intervals by the meteorological station were wind

Data for Arsenic Variability and Groundwater Age in Three Water-Supply Wells in Southeast New Hampshire

Three wells in New Hampshire were sampled bimonthly over three years to evaluate the temporal variability of arsenic concentrations and groundwater age. All samples had measurable concentrations of arsenic throughout the entire sampling period and concentrations in individual wells varied, on average, by more than 7 µg/L. High arsenic concentrations (>10 µg/L) were measure

Chloride concentrations and georeferenced land use variables from domestic wells in Vermont, 2011-2018

This data release presents chloride concentrations in groundwater sampled from 4,319 domestic wells across Vermont between 2011 and 2018. Ninety of these wells were sampled twice and 4,229 were sampled once. The Vermont Department of Health matched each well to geographic well information including town, county, distance to nearest road, population density and percent urban and agricult

Drought Streamflow Probabilities in Northeast Region

Maximum likelihood logistic regression (MLLR) is used to estimate drought probabilities for selected Northeast rivers and streams. Winter streamflows are used to estimate the chance of hydrologic drought during summer months. This application allows the display and query of these drought streamflow probabilities for Northeastern streams.

Baseline groundwater-quality data from a densely developed coastal neighborhood, Falmouth, Massachusetts (2016 - 2019)

This data release provides a comprehensive dataset of sampling-site characteristics and baseline groundwater-quality data collected from a network of multilevel sampling wells installed in a densely developed coastal neighborhood undergoing a conversion from onsite septic systems to municipal sewering. Groundwater samples were collected during multiple events from a total of 227 well screens...

Database of Lithostratigraphic Observations and Grain-Size Distributions From a Boring Drilled to Bedrock in Glacial Sediments Near Nantucket Sound in East Falmouth, Cape Cod, Massachusetts

This dataset presents descriptions of sediments collected from a boring drilled to bedrock near Nantucket Sound in East Falmouth, Cape Cod, Massachusetts. There are four types of descriptions—units, features, subsamples, and grain-size distributions: 1) Units correspond to “lithostratigraphic units” described by Hull and others (2019). Units are vertically...

Digital Photographs of Sediment Cores From a Boring Drilled to Bedrock in Glacial Sediments Near Nantucket Sound in East Falmouth, Cape Cod, Massachusetts

This dataset contains high-resolution digital photographs of sediment cores collected from a boring drilled to bedrock near Nantucket Sound in East Falmouth, Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Following collection and transportation to a processing facility, the upper half of each core was scraped to form a flat surface along the length of the core. Digital photographs were taken of 8-inch (20-...

Highway-Runoff Database (HRDB) Version 1.1.0

The Highway-Runoff Database (HRDB) was developed by the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to provide planning-level information for decision makers, planners, and highway engineers to assess and mitigate possible adverse effects of highway runoff on the Nation’s receiving waters. The HRDB was assembled by using a Microsoft

Temperature and Seepage Data from the Nearshore Bottom Sediments of Five Groundwater Flow-Through Glacial Kettle Lakes, Western Cape Cod, Massachusetts, 2015-18

Hydrologic data were collected in the nearshore lake-bottom sediments of five lakes on western Cape Cod, Massachusetts: Ashumet (Falmouth), Long (Centerville), Santuit (Mashpee), Shubael (Barnstable), and Snake (Sandwich) Ponds. Water budgets of flow-through glacial kettle lakes are commonly dominated by groundwater flow into and surface-water seepage out of the la

Observations of Lithostratigraphy and Hydrogeology From a Boring Drilled to Bedrock in Glacial Sediments Near Nantucket Sound in East Falmouth, Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Lithostratigraphic and hydrogeologic observations for the unconfined aquifer of western Cape Cod are limited near coastal groundwater-discharge areas. In spring 2015, a 310-foot-deep boring was drilled and a well was installed to 100 feet below land surface to facilitate detailed study of aquifer characteristics along the southern coast of Cape Cod. Characteristics of interest included the...
