Abstract: We evaluate the effects of small dams (11 of 15 sites less than 4 m high) on downstream channels at 15 sites in Maryland and Pennsylvania by using a reach upstream of the reservoir at each site to represent the downstream reach before dam construction.

A semi‐quantitative geomorphic characterization demonstrates that upstream reaches occupy Cited by: Search the Indiana University Library Catalog Search the library catalog. Low-flow characteristics of streams in Maryland and Delaware.

Maryland and the District of Columbia have abundant and economically important surface-water resources. Annual precipitation in these two areas is about 42 inches (U.S.

Geological Survey,p. In addition, an average of 30, million gallons per day enters the streams of Maryland and the District of Columbia from adjacent States. The regression equations included in NSS are used to transfer streamflow statistics from gaged to ungaged sites through the use of watershed and climatic characteristics as explanatory or predictor variables.

Generally, the equations were developed on a statewide or metropolitan-area basis as part of cooperative study programs.

Wetlands One-Stop Mapping is designed mainly to provide easy online access to geospatial data on wetlands and soils produced by federal and state agencies. This should help the average citizen and GIS users locate and learn more about U.S. wetlands. The health of streams can deteriorate as a result of channel degradation, channel instability, loss of habitat, loss of infrastructure, and poor water quality.

Communities and watershed managers need scientifically, ecologically, and economically sound approaches to mitigate the impacts of urbanization on city watersheds.

Suggested Citation:"References."National Research Council. Assessing the National Streamflow Information gton, DC: The National Academies Press. The best practice for crossing perennial streams is to avoid tire contact with the water. This offers the most protection for the stream and the environment by minimizing the risk of sedimentation.

This involves the installation of a bridge, culvert, or in low flow streams, well-placed cobble rock to keep the tires out of the water. This banner text can have markup. web; books; video; audio; software; images; Toggle navigation.

(b) If the site characteristics or standards described in these Regulations cannot be met, the Department may allow a reasonable repair or replacement installation in order to eliminate a public health hazard.

The National Streamflow Statistics (NSS) Program is a computer program that should be useful to engineers, hydrologists, and others for planning, management, and design applications. NSS compiles all current U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) regional regression equations for estimating streamflow statistics at ungaged sites in an easy-to-use interface that operates on computers.
