Summary

Filtered water samples were collected by the USGS National Water Quality Program (NWQP) Southeastern Stream Quality Assessment (SESQA) from 59 perennial, wadeable (less than 10 m width and 1 m depth at base-flow) headwater stream sites in watersheds with varying degrees of urban land use in four states. Dataset includes sample site locations and information, analytical method information, water sample pharmaceutical concentrations and summary statistics, and corresponding watershed land-use-land-cover data and data dictionary.

Purpose

Data were collected to address the current lack of information on fluvial pharmaceutical contamination in wadeable streams throughout the Piedmont USA ecoregion and assess the relative importance of non-WWTF sources of pharmaceutical contamination in these systems. Identification of potential watershed predictors of in-stream pharmaceutical contamination based on correlations with readily available geographic information system (GIS) land-use land-cover (LULC) metrics was a secondary objective.
