Summary

This dataset presents the results of 475 unique organic compounds collected from 54 wadeable streams within the Southeastern, USA, collected within 10 weeks during 2014. Maximum and median exposure conditions were evaluated in relation to watershed characteristics and for potential biological effects. This dataset contains the summary statistics (maximum and median concentrations)of detected compounds, as well as a summary of quality-assurance (blanks and replicates) samples. Also included are the statistical summaries as related to analyte specific contaminant detection/concentration data and site-specific land-use matrices, spearman-rank correlations, and ToxCast evaluations.
