Hydrologic data collection, processing, analysis, dissemination, and archiving are major parts of the New Jersey Water Science Center program. Streamflow data, for example, are used for flood and water-supply forecasts, planning and design, river regulation, streamflow statistics, and research investigations. Much of the data are available on a near-real-time basis by satellite telemetry.

MODFLOW-2005 model used to simulate the regional groundwater flow system in the updated New Jersey Coastal Plain model, 1980-2013

A third revision of the New Jersey Coastal Plain (NJCP) groundwater flow model, using MODFLOW-2005 (version 1.12.00), was completed to maintain the model’s usefulness for water-resource managment and development. The regional groundwater-flow model was initially developed for the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Regional Aquifer System Analysis (RASA) program. Periodic revision of the model is requir

Target-chemical concentrations and microbiological results in surface water and tapwater, Montana, 2022

This data release contains the concentration and quality-assurance results for inorganic constituents, as well as organic compounds (volatile organic compounds [VOC], per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances [PFAS], pesticides and disinfection byproducts [DBP]) and microbiological results collected in the Little Big Horn River and residential or commercial tapwater locations in Montana. Twenty-two tapw

Concentrations of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in tapwater collected throughout the United States, 2021-22

This dataset contains the concentration and quality assurance results for 34 per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). 409 residential and commercial tapwater samples were collected once between May 2021 and May 2022, in the contiguous U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands. Of these samples 252 were from publicly supplied tapwater locations, and 155 were sourced from private

Urban Waters Federal Partnership: Novel bacteria monitoring technology in support of recreational water quality monitoring in the Lower Delaware River

The United States Geological Survey’s (USGS) New Jersey Water Science Center, in coordination with the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) deployed a novel bacterial water-quality monitor, the Fluidion Alert V2 (Fluidion), in the Delaware River at Pyne Poynt Park in Camden County, New Jersey. Following United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recreational water quality criteria, DRBC

Geochemical and mineralogic investigation of elevated arsenic and trace element concentrations in glauconitic soils and sediments of the New Jersey Inner Coastal Plain

The U.S. Geological Survey New Jersey Water Science Center (USGS NJWSC) in cooperation with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) has assembled this data release in support of ongoing USGS and NJDEP evaluations related to the occurrence and distribution of elevated trace elements, particularly arsenic (As) and vanadium (V), in Inner Coastal Plain soils and sediments of New

Water quality and contaminants in stream surface waters collected in the Shenandoah Valley, 2021

The data presented in this data release includes 11 field/water quality parameters, concentrations of 16 nutrients/anions, dissolved organic carbon, 14 organic contaminants, net estrogenicity concentrations, and 51 inorganic constituents in surface water collected twice from 28 stream sites and collected once from 2 stream sites in the Shenandoah Valley (Virginia and West Virginia, USA), in the su

MODFLOW-2000 model used to evaluate the effects of possible changes in water-supply withdrawals from, and effluent recharge to, the Kirkwood-Cohansey aquifer system, Winslow Township, Camden County, New Jersey

A previously developed groundwater-flow model of the Great Egg Harbor and Mullica River Basins, N.J. ( by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) was used to analyze the effects on groundwater levels and stream base flow from possible changes in groundwater withdrawals and effluent infiltration in Winslow Township, Camden County, New Jersey. The Camden County Municipa

WASP model used to simulate flow and eutrophication in the central Salem River, New Jersey

A one-dimensional surface-water quality model of the central Salem River Basin, New Jersey was developed to examine the causes of eutrophication and predict the effects of reduced point and nonpoint source nutrient loads on water quality. The model was developed using the USEPA WASP code. The model simulates channel flow and the fate and transport of dissolved oxygen, oxygen demands, nutrients, an

Synthetic storm-driven flood-inundation grids for coastal communities in 10 New Jersey counties

Digital flood-inundation maps for an approximately 295-mile length of the New Jersey coastline and tidewaters through 10-coastal counties stretching from Cumberland County through Bergen County; including Cumberland, Cape May, Atlantic, Ocean, Monmouth, Middlesex, Union, Essex, Hudson, and Bergen counties were created by the U.S Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the New Jersey Departmen

MODFLOW 6 and MODPATH7 used to simulate regional groundwater flow and advective transport of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst and vicinity, New Jersey, 2018

A three-dimensional groundwater flow model using MODFLOW 6 (version 6.2.2) was developed and calibrated for unconsolidated Coastal Plain aquifers underlying the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (JBMDL) and vicinity, New Jersey, to evaluate groundwater flow pathways of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) contamination associated with use of aqueous film forming foam (AFFF). The model was dev

Estimated low-flow statistics at ungaged stream locations in New Jersey, water year 2021

Estimates of various low-flow statistics were computed at 66 ungaged stream locations throughout New Jersey during the 2021 water year using methods in the published reports, 1) Streamflow characteristics and trends in New Jersey, water years 1897-2003 (Watson and others, 2005) and 2) Implementation of MOVE.1, censored MOVE.1, and piecewise MOVE.1 low-flow regressions with applications at partial-

Geomorphic metrics across four catchments in Clarksburg, Maryland, 2002-19

This dataset contains geomorphic metrics across 32 cross-sections at four catchments within the Clarksburg Special Protection Area in Montgomery County, Maryland. These data were derived from raw cross-sectional data collected by the Montgomery County, Maryland Department of Environmental Protection. Geomorphic metrics include channel area, bed location, channel depth, channel width, and bank move
