SRBC releases findings from monitoring programs

The Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC) recently announced findings from four separate river monitoring programs providing biological and water quality data used to assess streams and rivers and identify changes in stream health over time.  The technical reports focus on: (1) the Susquehanna River and other large rivers, (2) West Branch Susquehanna Subbasin, (3) the Lackawanna River, and (4) streams that cross the New York–Pennsylvania and Pennsylvania–Maryland state lines.

Each of the Commission’s monitoring programs is unique and generates data that are very valuable to water managers.  The data can be used to assess compliance with state and federal water quality standards, characterize stream quality and identify areas for restoration and protection.

–Paul Swartz, SRBC Executive Director
