Chloride-specific conductance regression model forms for estimating high-frequency chloride concentrations
The file "Chloride_specific_conductance_regression_model_forms_for_estimating_high-frequency_chloride_concentrations.csv" contains the regression equation forms for two types of regressions: 1) single linear (SLR) and 2) piecewise (or segmented; SEG) regression between specific conductance (SC) and chloride (Cl) concentrations for 56 USGS water-quality monitoring stations across the eastern United States, plus four regional regressions developed by pooling data for sites within a region (see Moore and others (in review) for more information). Some sites, and all regions, have both SLR and SEG models reported in this table. The analysis included in the Moore and others (in review) study used results from the SLR...

Changes in anthropogenic influences on streams and rivers in the conterminous U.S. over the last 40 years, derived for 16 data themes
This product consists of time-series calculations of anthropogenic characteristics derived for 16 data themes for multiple scales covering the conterminous United States. The characteristics are those which (a) have consistent data sources, and (b) have the potential to affect the water quality of streams and rivers. All 16 data themes are provided for Hydrologic Unit Code level-10 (HUC-10) boundaries (n = 15,458). Additionally, measures of land use and imperviousness are provided for U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) Level 4 ecoregions (n = 967) and for U.S. counties (n = 3,109). The data may be scaled up to broader areas; that is, HUC-10 data may be scaled up to HUC-8, 6, 4, or HUC-2 areas, Level 4...

This data set includes estimated chloride concentrations for the 93 USGS water quality monitoring stations located across the eastern United States. Chloride concentrations were predicted using regression equations that established the relationship between simultaneous measurements of chloride and specific conductance (SC). Site-specific models were developed and applied when data were available, and regional regression models were used where there were insufficient data available to establish a site-specific regression model. These models were applied to high-frequency SC data sets to produce high-frequency predicted chloride concentrations at 2-minute to 1-hour intervals, depending on the frequency at which SC...

Introduction The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) is evaluating alternative treatments for road deicing with the goal of reducing the impact of this activity on the State’s water resources. The NYSDOT has requested support from the U. S. Geological Survey (USGS) in monitoring the effects of these alternative treatments on the water resources. In the past, the USGS has cooperated with State transportation agencies in studies to evaluate road-deicer concentrations in Massachusetts (Church and others, 1996; Granato and Smith, 1999; and Smith and Granato, 2010) and to determine the impacts on water resources in Ohio and Indiana that included the application of surface-and borehole-geophysical technologies...

This data set includes input data for the development of regression models to predict chloride from specific conductance (SC) data at 56 U. S. Geological Survey water quality monitoring stations in the eastern United States. Each site has 20 or more simultaneous observations of SC and chloride. Data were downloaded from the National Water Information System (NWIS) using the R package dataRetrieval. Datasets for each site were evaluated and outliers were removed prior to the development of the regression model. This file contains only the final input dataset for the regression models. Please refer to Moore and others (in review) for more details. Moore, J., R. Fanelli, and A. Sekellick. In review. High-frequency...

Response variables derived from predicted high-frequency chloride concentrations and specific conductance values
This data set contains 18 metrics used to describe patterns in specific conductance (SC) and chloride concentrations in 93 streams located across the eastern United States. These data were quantified for an analysis described in Moore and others (in review). All metrics were quantified for a water year and a median was taken across all years for which data were available to provide a single value for each site. High-frequency SC and chloride were measured or estimated at sub-daily time steps from 2-minute intervals to hourly intervals (e.g., high-frequency) depending on the site. Moore, J., R. Fanelli, and A. Sekellick. In review. High-frequency data reveal deicing salts drive elevated conductivity and chloride...

Data supporting a spatiotemporal trend analysis of specific conductivity, streamflow, and landscape attributes of selected sub-basins within the Delaware River watershed, 1980 to 2018
This data release makes available three data tables supporting a spatiotemporal analysis of riverine conductivity and streamflow trends within the Delaware River Basin. The listed datasets include baseflow and total flow time series for selected gaged basins, watershed attributes, water quality information and trend analysis results.

Discrete and high-frequency chloride (Cl) and specific conductance (SC) data sets and Cl-SC regression equations used for analysis of 93 USGS water quality monitoring stations in the eastern United States
High frequency estimated chloride (Cl) and observed specific conductance (SC) data sets, along with response variables derived from those data sets, were used in an analysis to quantify the extent to which deicer applications in winter affect water quality in 93 U.S. Geological Survey water quality monitoring stations across the eastern United States. The analysis was documented in the following publication: Moore, J., Fanelli, R.M., and Sekellick, A.J., in review, high frequency data reveal deicing salts drive elevated conductivity and chloride along with pervasive and frequent exceedances of the EPA aquatic life criteria for chloride in urban streams. Submitted to Environmental Science and Technology. This data...
