Summary

This USGS data release contains 2013 streamflow, baseflow, and precipitation data from three hydrologically-diverse streams in the United States used to develop a conceptual framework for effectively anticipating water-quality changes resulting from changes in agricultural activities. The framework combined generalized concepts on the movement of water, the environmental behavior of chemicals and eroded soil, and the designed functions of various agricultural activities. The framework addresses the impacts on water quality of a broad range of agricultural chemicals and sediment across a variety of hydrologic settings. • Chesterville Branch near Crumpton, Maryland, (USGS site ID - 01493112) had substantial baseflow throughout the [...]

Purpose

The data set of 2013 daily streamflow, baseflow, and precipitation data was compiled as a real example of a conceptual framework that would set realistic expectations for the protection and improvement of water quality that can result from a change in agricultural management practices and enable better decision making for the future. Overall, this framework consolidates diverse hydrologic settings, chemicals, and agricultural activities into a single, broad context to determine realistic expectations for current agricultural activities and enable better decision making for the future.
