Major aquifers in New Jersey

The Coastal Plain is the largest physiographic province in New Jersey. It lies southeast of the Fall Line, where it intersects the Piedmont province in a series of falls along river courses. The geology of the Coastal Plain is characterized by unconsolidated sand, gravel, silt, and clay thickening seaward from a featheredge at the Fall Line to more than 6,500 feet (ft) thick in southern Cape...

Galloway Mathematical Models

The Galloway research team has developed and documented three computer programs for simulating flow and transport in the unsaturated zone that are available to the public.  These programs were funded by the Toxics Substances Hydrology Program. The computer codes are written in Fortran F77 and run on a variety of...

Stormwater Runoff TMDL for Aquatic Life

Biological impairment is but an indicator that some type of anthropogenic process has occurred resulting in aquatic assemblage degradation. The purpose of this proposal is to establish an applicable TMDL approach to address aquatic life impairments associated with stormwater runoff and hydrologic alteration for streams in New Jersey with the goal of improving river systems by reducing the...

Salem River Flow and Water Quality Model

NJDEP has determined that water quality modeling of the Salem River is necessary for a nutrient (phosphorus) TMDL. However, little background data is available for the basin. Intensive field monitoring was commenced by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) for the NJDEP in 2007 to support understanding of the nutrient loading processes in basin as well as to provide the input data to the flow and...

Refinements of the Data-Collection Workflow and Use of the Penobscot Indian Nation Environmental (Pine) Database

A database was developed by the USGS for the Penobscot Indian Nation (PIN) in 2000 to store water-quality and associated data. A data-entry application in MS Access was also provided. The resulting database and data-entry application are referred to as the Penobscot Indian Nation Environmental (PINE) database.

Pilot for Long Term Daily Hydrograph Development for the Ecological Flow Goals

To use NJHAT at ungaged sites, an analytical tool is required that can develop a long-term daily hydrograph at these sites. The objectives of the project is to pilot the use of TOPMODEL and DHI software to produce long-term hydrographs at gaged sites and to show that one or both of these models could be used to produce long-term hydrographs at ungaged sites with sufficient accuracy for use...

Penobscot Indian Nation Database

A database was developed by the USGS for the Penobscot Indian Nation (PIN) in 1999 to store water-quality and associated data.  A data-entry application in MS Access was also provided. The resulting database and data-entry application are referred to as the Penobscot Indian Nation Environmental (PINE) database. For FY11 the USGS has been requested for development assistance to further improve...

Hydrogeologic Framework of CDE Superfund Site, South Plainfield, NJ

The US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) in cooperation with the US Geological Survey (USGS) has developed a work plan to investigate the hydrogeologic framework of the Cornell-Dubilier Electronics Superfund Site (CDE) in South Plainfield, New Jersey. The objective is to collect and analyze a suite of borehole geophysics data from selected offsite monitoring wells in conjunction with...

Evaluation of the changes in hydrology and ground- and surface-water quality in an urban wetlands as part of a wetlands restoration effort

Wetlands restoration projects have often been unsuccessful because the effects of changes in the hydrology and water quality on plant communities are poorly understood. The overall goal of the project is to evaluate the effects of the modification of the flow regime in an urban wetlands area on the hydrogeology, water quality, soil characteristics, and plant communities over a thee-year period...

Estimation of Low-flow Statistics for Ungaged Stream Sites on New Jersey Streams

To protect existing water supplies, to plan for future water supplies, and to protect and enhance the aquatic ecology, the NJDEP and USGS, through cooperative agreements, have been developing tools and strategies that can assist in allocating the water resources of the state among competing needs. One such tool is the New Jersey Hydroecological Assessment Tool (NJHAT) that can calculate 171...
