||The Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC) used a water quality index (WQI) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agencys (USEPAs) Rapid Bioassessment Protocol III (RBP III) to assess the chemical water quality, biological conditions, and physical habitat of 52 sample sites in the Interstate Streams Water Quality Network from July 1, 2004, to June 30, 2005. Seventy-two of 734 possible parameter observations exceeded water quality standards. Assessment results indicate that approximately 49 percent of the sites supported nonimpaired biological communities. Water quality impacts in the NYPA border streams continue to be mostly from metals, while most PA-MD border sites continued to have higher nitrogen and nitrate values, in addition to some elevated metals.
