Episodic Master Recession Model Output used for Recharge Estimation in a Rain Garden on Sandy Soil, Gary, Indiana, 2016-18

A rain garden and other stormwater control measures (SCM) were installed at Gary City Hall in Gary, Indiana to retain water, increase infiltration, and divert stormwater from city sewers. In order to investigate the impacts of the installed SCMs, hydrologic data were collected prior to and following the installation to estimate site water budgets (Lampe and others, 2022). The Episodic Master Reces

National Water-Well Database (NWWDB): Minnesota

This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) data release represents the Minnesota component of the National Water-Well Database (NWWDB). The NWWDB is a compilation of water-well records from state-managed databases that have been standardized to a common format for consistency across state and administrative boundaries. Water-well completion reports that are submitted to permitting state agencies by licens

Extractable elements data for sediment-source fingerprinting in Black Creek, Indiana, tributary to the Maumee River and western Lake Erie

This data release includes chemical data for samples from upland-source and streambank sampling sites in the Black Creek basin, Indiana. Data include concentrations for 20 elements, extracted by Mehlich-3 extraction. Source samples were collected in August and September 2017 and analyzed in 2019.

MODFLOW 6 and MODPATH 7 model data sets used for the update of the groundwater-flow model for the Great Miami Buried-Valley Aquifer in the vicinity of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, Ohio

A previously constructed numerical model ( simulating the regional groundwater-flow system in the vicinity of the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB) near Dayton, Ohio, was updated to incorporate current hydrologic stresses and conditions and improve the usefulness of the model for water-supply planning and protection. The Great Miami buried-valley aquifer

Dataset for Analyses in Assessment of Runoff Volume Reduction Associated with Soil Amendments Added to Portions of Highway Median-Strip Catchments in Ohio

Rainfall and runoff data were collected during non-winter months between 2018 and 2020 at 10 rain gages and 12 calibrated H-flumes located in Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) highway median-strip catchments. The data were used to compute event-based summary statistics of rainfall and runoff. A rainfall-runoff "event" was defined to begin at the time of the first measured rainfall

Laboratory Assessment of Colloidal Borescope and Heat-Pulse Flowmeters in Measuring Horizontal Flow in Fractured-Rock Simulators

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), at the request of the U.S. Army Environmental Command (USAEC), evaluated the capabilities of two borehole technologies to measure horizontal groundwater velocity and direction of flow in a parallel-plate fractured-rock simulator. A colloidal borescope flowmeter (HB) and a heat-pulse flowmeter (HH) were deployed in 4-inch and 6-inch inner-diameter simulated uncase

Water Availability Tool for Environmental Resources for the Commonwealth of Kentucky updated for 2019

In 2009, the Kentucky Water Science Center completed the Water Availability Tool for Environmental Resources (WATER-KY), which provided the ability to simulate streamflow for the period 1980-2000. This model integrated TOPMODEL (Beven and Kirkby, 1979) for pervious portions of the landscape with simulation of flow generated from impervious surfaces (USDA, 1986). Associated products included a flow

Velocity surveys and three-dimensional point measurements of basic water-quality constituents in nearshore Lake Erie in the vicinity of Villa Angela Beach and Euclid Creek, Cleveland, Ohio, June 10–12, 2019, and August 19&nda

Water velocities and water-quality constituents were measured along planned survey lines, which were generally perpendicular to the shoreline and spaced 100 meters apart, over an approximately 2.3-mile section of nearshore Lake Erie on June 10-12, 2019 (survey 1), and August 19-21, 2019 (survey 2), using a 1200 kHz acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP), a YSI 6920 V2 multiparameter sonde, and a

Black Creek Rapid Geomorphic Assessment, Allen County, Indiana

The Maumee River network contributes a significant amount of total phosphorus (P), including both sediment-bound P (sed-P) and dissolved reactive P (DRP, also known as orthophosphate). Most headwater streams of the Maumee River are predominantly agricultural in land use, interspersed with rural communities. Implementation of best management practices on agricultural operations has worked to limit

Data for multiple linear regression models for estimating Escherichia coli (E. coli) concentrations or the probability of exceeding the bathing-water standard at recreational sites in Ohio and Pennsylvania as part of the Great Lakes NowCast, 2019

Site-specific multiple linear regression models were developed for one beach in Ohio (three discrete sampling sites) and one beach in Pennsylvania to estimate concentrations of Escherichia coli (E. coli) or the probability of exceeding the bathing-water standard for E. coli in recreational waters used by the public. Traditional culture-based methods are commonly used to estimate concentrations of

Data and rloadest models for daily total nitrogen load for the School Branch Watershed, Hendricks County, Indiana - water years 2016-2018

Total Nitrogen (TN) rloadest models were developed to compute TN flux at School Branch at three USGS monitoring stations: School Branch at Maloney Road near Brownsburg, Indiana (03353415); School Branch at CR750N at Brownsburg, Indiana (03353420); and School Branch at Noble Drive at Brownsburg, Indiana (03353430). Frequently, TN models developed in rloadest regress discrete TN concentrations again

Measurements of velocity and bathymetry in the tailwater of Kentucky Dam (Tennessee River) near Gilbertsville, Kentucky, September 17-18, 2020

These data are bathymetry (river bottom elevation) and depth-averaged velocities generated from the September 17–18, 2020, survey of the Kentucky Dam tailwater from just downstream from Kentucky Dam to approximately 1,500 feet upstream from the I-24 bridge (about 1 mile total length). Bathymetry and velocity data were collected using an acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) with an integrated g
