This community catalog serves the USGS Pennsylvania Water Science Center. The Water Science Center's mission is to collect, analyze and disseminate the impartial hydrologic data and information needed to wisely manage water resources for the people of the United States and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. In Pennsylvania, the USGS's water-resources roots date back to the late 1800's, with the initiation of streamflow gaging on the Delaware and Susquehanna Rivers and the evaluation of groundwater resources in various parts of the Commonwealth. Today, the Pennsylvania Water Science Center's cadre of nearly 80 scientists, technicians, and support staff in New Cumberland, Exton, Pittsburgh, and Williamsport work in...
The USGS and Virginia Tech are determining if and how the implementation of best management practices (BMPs) in watersheds have improved the health of Chesapeake nontidal streams. Our goal is to identify the effects of BMPs and land-use on stream ecosystems by linking upstream landscape change to stream physical habitat, water quality, flow and temperature, and macroinvertebrate and fish responses. We are also determining the specific sources of stress to streams and fish populations to help identify which management practices are most likely to improve stream health. Each year from 2021 to 2024 we study a different Chesapeake landscape setting (aka "typology") that is a focus area for stakeholders to implement...
