Model climate scenario output for the Upper Charles river basin, Massachusetts, 2036-2065 change from 1975-2004, Representative Concentration Pathways 4.5 and 8.5

This data release provides a set of Hydrological Simulation Program--Fortran (HSPF) model files representing 5 EPA-selected future climate change scenarios for the Upper Charles River Basin in Massachusetts. Output from these models are intended for use as input to EPA Watershed Management Optimization Support Tool (WMOST) modeling. Climate scenarios, based on 2036-2065 changes from 197

Variables used as input to a logistic regression model to estimate high-arsenic domestic-well population in the United States, 1970 through 2013

Approximately 44.1 million people (about 14 percent of the U.S. population) rely on domestic wells as their source of drinking water. Unlike community water systems, which are regulated by the Safe Drinking Water Act, there is no comprehensive national program for testing domestic well water to ensure that is it safe to drink. There are many activities, e.g., resource extraction,

WellYield_GIS_NashobaTerrane

This data set is a point data layer representing well yield at 7,287 bedrock wells in the Nashoba Terrane in central and eastern Massachusetts. The data were compiled from databases of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection and U.S. Geological Survey. The data are described and interpreted in U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report 2012-5155 by DeSimone and...

Inventory of water-quality and geologic-setting data from 674 private wells in Connecticut, 2013-2015

This dataset contains the water-quality results from the testing of unfiltered water samples (environmental samples) collected from 674 private wells in Connecticut for the analysis of arsenic and (or) uranium, using EPA method 200.8. All of the environmental water-quality data and georeferenced locations of the sampled wells were provided by the Connecticut Department of Public Health

Generalized linear models for forecasting the probability of groundwater levels declining below specified low thresholds for selected wells in the conterminous U.S.

This dataset contains *.rdata files that contain model objects returned from the glm{stats} function (v.3.3.0) in R. for 258 models derived for selected wells in the conterminous United States. The models are generalized linear models with a binomial response variable (glm family set to binomial) for forecasting the probability of groundwater levels declining or maintaining below sp

Streamflow and total phosphorus and orthophosphate data for samples collected in and near the Assabet River, Massachusetts, October 2008 through April 2014

Streamflow and phosphorus concentrations were monitored in the Assabet River in central Massachusetts in order to evaluate concentrations and loads in the river before, during, and after changes in the amount of total phosphorus that was discharged to the river from three wastewater-treatment plants. At four locations the U.S. Geological Survey collected weekly flow-proportional, composite
