Event sampling programs were conducted at 11 tributary monitoring stations in the Lake Erie and Lake Ontario watersheds during the 1982 - 1985 water years. Samples were analyzed for suspended sediments, nutrients and pesticides at 8 stations in the Lake Erie watershed and for suspended sediments and nutrients at 3 stations in the Lake Ontario watershed. The resulting data illustrate and quantify the effects of agricultural nonpoint pollution on regional surface waters. The data are analyzed with respect to both the concentration patterns of pollutants at the transport stations and the loadings of pollutants at the stations. Time weighted and flux weighted mean concentrations are presented, as are percentile distributions and concentration exceedency curves. Total loads, unit area loads and loading exceedency tables are also presented. Relative to tributaries in other agricultural regions, the concentrations of nitrates and pesticides in northwestern Ohio tributaries to Lake Erie are particularly high.
