Summary

Water-quality data were collected by the Providence Water Supply Board (PWSB) from tributaries in the Scituate Reservoir drainage area, October 2015 through September 2016 (water year 2016). These data were used to calculate instantaneous loads and yields of constituents in a report by the U.S. Geological Survey. Water-quality samples were collected by the PWSB either monthly or quarterly at fixed stations on 34 tributaries in the Scituate Reservoir drainage area. Water-quality samples were collected following a strict sampling schedule so that water-quality samples would be representative of various weather conditions. Samples were analyzed at the PWSB water-quality laboratory at the P.J. Holton Water Purification Plant in Scituate, [...]

Purpose

Water-quality samples were collected monthly or quarterly at 34 sampling stations in the Scituate Reservoir drainage area by the Providence Water Supply Board during WY 2016 as part of a long-term sampling program. Data are released here in digital form to support their use in a USGS report on streamflow, water quality, and constituent loads and yields in the Scituate Reservoir drainage basin, water year 2016.
