Ohio Kentucky Indiana Water Science Center

Home

Welcome to the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana  Water Science Center. In October 2017, the three Water Science Centers were merged to become one "Integrated" Science Center. We look forward to helping you achieve your goals by providing water quantity and quality information, as well as scientific tools and understanding, when and where they are needed by citizens, businesses, and public officials!

Regression models for estimating sediment and nutrient concentrations and loads at the Kankakee River, Shelby, Indiana, December 2015 through May 2018

The Kankakee River in northern Indiana flows through the area once known as the Grand Marsh. Beginning in the 1860s, anthropogenic changes to the river within Indiana resulted in downstream flooding and additional transport of sediment and nutrients. In 2015, the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Indiana Department of Environmental...
