Summary

The Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife has been studying brook trout populations in Cape Cod groundwater-fed river systems for decades. Recently, a notable reduction in trout population in the Santuit River sparked the concern of several groups, including the Wampanoag Tribe. Brook trout population dynamics may be tied to water quality and temperature changes, which are both impacted by spatially preferential groundwater discharge to the river. The streambed interface temperature and near-surface geophysical data compiled in this data release were collected in summer 2018 as part of a larger effort to characterize the spatial distribution of groundwater discharge zones, and exchanges with surface water, along Cape Cod [...]

Purpose

The primary purpose of data collection at these sites is to distinguish zones of groundwater/surface water exchange along the Santuit River. This information is intended to assist The Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife and the Mashpee Wompanoag Tribe in ongoing studies and management of native brook trout populations.
