Four U.S. Geological Survey crews will be in the field on Maryland’s lower Eastern Shore to collect water-quality samples at 16 stream sites in the Pocomoke, Wicomico, Manokin, and Transquaking River basins.

The average daily freshwater inflow to the Chesapeake Bay in the first seven months of 1998 was about 100.5 billion gallons per day (bgd), according to scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey. This is 12% higher than 1996, the year of record, when average daily inflow between January and July was about 90 bgd, and about 157% higher than the average inflow rate. Records have been kept since 1951.

July 31, 1998

From native birds to exotic plants, USGS scientists will present diverse research at the annual meeting of The Ecological Society of America at the Baltimore Convention Center, Baltimore, Md., Aug. 2-7.

May 1, 1998

Streamflow in April into the Chesapeake Bay was about 115 billion gallons per day (bgd) and flow in the Potomac River was about 19 bgd, in the normal range for the first time in 1998. Hydrologists at the U.S. Geological Survey state that, while flows are still above average, they are well within normal expected limits.

March 3, 1998

February streamflow in the Potomac River at Washington, DC, and total flow into the Chesapeake Bay were the highest on record for February, according to the U. S. Geological Survey (USGS). 

February 3, 1998

January streamflow in the Potomac River at Washington, DC, and total flow into the Chesapeake Bay were the second-highest on record, exceeded only by flows in January, 1996, according to the U. S.Geological Survey (USGS). The generally wetter-than normal conditions increase the likelihood of flooding from storms that may follow.

December 9, 1997

About half the high nitrate concentrations in nontidal streams and rivers that contribute to the decline of fish populations in Chesapeake Bay come from underground sources, according to research findings presented by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) today (Dec 9. 1997).

December 1, 1997

A poster produced from satellite images of the Chesapeake Bay watershed will aid a multi-state effort to restore and manage the Bay’s resources, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

October 8, 1997

Analysis of Chesapeake Bay sediment cores collected by the U.S. Geological Survey and the University of Maryland Center for Environmental and Estuarine Studies (CEES) indicates that some of the sediment samples dating back hundreds or thousands of years contain Pfiesteria-like organisms and other microbes. 

September 26, 1997

Scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and other federal and state agencies involved in Chesapeake Baystudies are working together to understand the delivery of nutrients from the land into the Bay and the relationship of nutrients to Pfiesteria-like organisms and ultimately fish health.

August 15, 1997

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is working with scientists from George Mason University and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources to collect a water sample from the Pocomoke River and analyze the sample for a variety of commonly used pesticides.

August 11, 1997

"We are extremely concerned about this issue, especially in light of the fish kill which began Wednesday (Aug.6) near the mouth of the Pocomoke River," said USGS Chief Biologist Dennis Fenn.
