List of data releases and publications from the New England Water Science Center released in the second quarter of 2021.
This U.S. Geological Survey data release provides a comprehensive dataset of water-quality data and sampling-site characteristics collected in 1978-2018 during a study of the effects of land disposal of treated wastewater on groundwater quality in an unconsolidated sand and gravel aquifer on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Treated sewage-derived wastewater was discharged to rapid-infiltration beds at Joi
This dataset contains U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) developed hydraulic models, USGS developed hydrology data, US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) supplied data (topography/bathymetry and structure data for pre removal conditions), and USGS field surveyed data at nine dam-removal and culvert-retrofit sites in the northeastern United States (Olson and Simeone, 2021). The hydrology, the USFWS suppl
Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permitees including the California Department of Transportation need information about potential loads and yields (loads per unit area) of constituents of concern in stormwater runoff. These entities also need information about the potential effectiveness of stormwater best management practices (BMPs) used to mitigate the effects of runoff.
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) developed a regression model for estimating August mean baseflow per square mile of drainage area to help resource managers assess relative amounts of baseflow in streams with Maine Atlantic Salmon habitat. The model was derived from August mean baseflows computed at 31 USGS streamgages in and near the Gulf of Maine Atlantic Salmon Habitat Recovery Units. An ordin
Water-quality data were collected by the Providence Water Supply Board (PWSB) from tributaries in the Scituate Reservoir drainage area, October 2017 through September 2019 (water years 2018 and 2019). Water-quality samples were collected by the PWSB either monthly or quarterly at fixed stations on 37 tributaries in the Scituate Reservoir drainage area. These data were used to calculate instantaneo
The National Water Dashboard (NWD) is a mobile, interactive tool that provides real-time information on water levels, weather, and flood forecasts - all in one place on a computer, smartphone, or other mobile device. The NWD presents real-time stream, lake and reservoir, precipitation, and groundwater data from more than 13,500 USGS observation stations across the country.
In this explorable interactive tool you will investigate a series of charts and sliders to explore how water level, water velocity, number of measurement points and stream channel shape influence stream flow. Great for use in the classroom, especially for student curious about coding.
