Water-Quality, Streamflow, and Quality-Control Data Supporting Estimation of Nutrient and Sediment Loads in the Scituate Reservoir Drainage Area, Rhode Island, Water Years 2016-19

August 3, 2022

Annual loads of selected constituents were estimated for five stations in the Scituate Reservoir drainage area, Rhode Island, for water years 2016 to 2019 as part of a long-term monitoring program in cooperation with the Providence Water Supply Board. This data release includes the water-quality and streamflow data used to estimate annual loads of total phosphorus, dissolved phosphorus, total nitrogen, dissolved nitrogen, and suspended sediment with a custom regression model in the LOADEST program (Runkel and others, 2004) and by direct computation using streamflow and mean constituent concentration. Daily mean values of base flow and event-based stormflow volumes were determined by fixed-base hydrograph separation to partition constituent [...]
