Chesapeake Bay River Input Monitoring Network 1985-2018: WRTDS output data

Nitrogen, phosphorus, and suspended-sediment loads, and changes in loads, in major rivers across the Chesapeake Bay watershed have been calculated using monitoring data from the Chesapeake Bay River Input Monitoring Network (RIM) stations for the period 1985 through 2018. Nutrient and suspended-sediment loads and changes in loads were determined by applying a weighted regression appro

Multispectral and visual photogrammetric data collected via sUAS: Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge, Virginia, July 2018

The U.S. Geological Survey collected multispectral and visible light imagery via a quadcopter, small unoccupied aircraft system (sUAS) deployed near Ashville Bridge Creek in Virginia Beach, VA. Approximately 0.25 sq mi surrounding US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge along Ashville Bridge Creek approximately 0.5 mi south of Lotus Garden Park on July 1

Shenandoah River Accumulated Wastewater Ratio (Version 2.0)

Incedental wastewater reuse from streams that receive discharges from Wastewater Treatment Facilities (WWTF) has the potential to be a significant contributor of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals. An ArcGIS model of WWTFs, NHDPlus Version 2 stream networks (USGS and EPA 2012), and gage stations across the Shenandoah River watershed was created to calculate accumulated wastewater in perce

Estimating Drought Streamflow Probabilities for Virginia Streams

Maximum likelihood logistic regression is used to estimate drought probabilities for selected Virginia rivers and streams. Hydrologic drought streamflow probabilities for summer months are provided as functions of streamflows during the previous winter months. This application allows the display and query of these drought streamflow probabilities for Virginia streams.

Proposed locations for expansion of the West Virginia streamgaging network

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the West Virginia Water Gaging Council have proposed an expansion to the existing West Virginia streamgage network. As of December 18, 2018, the USGS operates a network of 149 real-time streamgages in West Virginia. This geospatial dataset provides the approximate locations of 39 proposed streamgages. These streamgages include 31 presently operated by
