Changes in Soil and Stream Water Chemistry in Response to Reduction in Acid Deposition in the Catskills

End Date
2015-06-30

Summary

Summary The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Long Term Monitoring (LTM) network has supported the collection of stream chemistry data in the Catskills since the 1990s. Trends in stream chemistry have periodically been evaluated in these streams but the most recent assessments only extend through the early 2000s. An updated assessment of stream chemistry trends will help evaluate the effects of recent substantial declines in acid deposition during the last decade. This study will evaluate changes in surface water chemistry from 1991 through 2013 at 5 stations in the Neversink and Rondout watersheds in the Catskill Mountains of New York. The results will be compared to changes in atmospheric deposition from three (3) National [...]

typeShort Project Description
valueThis study will evaluate changes in surface water chemistry from 1991 through 2013 at 5 stations in the Neversink and Rondout watersheds in the Catskill Mountains of New York. This work will inform policy by providing important feedback on the success of Title IV of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments and other factors that have reduced SO2 and NOX emissions over the past few decades.
