Summary

From October 2007 through September 2010, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the Tennessee Duck River Development Agency monitored water quality at 24 sites in the Upper Duck River Watershed. Water samples were collected and analyzed for carbonate hardness, acid neutralizing capacity, chloride, ammonia, nitrate, nitrite, phosphorus, boron, bromine, Enterococci and Escherichia coli (E. coli). A handheld sonde was also used to measure specific conductance, water temperature and turbidity. At a subset of sites, streamflow and selected water-quality characteristics (including some combination of turbidity, specific conductance, water temperature, and dissolved oxygen) were continuously monitored and regression models [...]

Purpose

The data were collected in conjunction with the Tennessee Duck River Development Agency so future researchers could assess the sources and variability of drinking water contaminants in the Duck River and selected tributaries.
