Gyves, M.C., 2021, Surrogate regression models for computation of time series suspended-sediment concentrations, Chester County, Pennsylvania (2020): U.S. Geological Survey data release,


The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the Chester County Water Resources Authority (CCWRA), has collected discrete stream samples for analysis of suspended-sediment concentrations at seven gaging stations where near real-time continuous data on stream discharge, and turbidity have been collected since 2005. Historical regression equations to estimate suspended-sediment concentrations are reported in Sloto, R.A., and Olson, L.E., Estimated suspended-sediment loads and yields in the French and Brandywine Creek Basins, Chester County, Pennsylvania, water years 2008–09: U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report 2011–5109, 31 p. for four of the seven stations, including French Creek near Phoenixville, West [...]
