The document presents summary data related to each of the 96 watersheds containing APCs in the NSI data evaluation. The first section of this document, Classification of Sampling Stations by Watershed, presents the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) cataloging unit number and name for each watershed identified as containing an APC. It also identifies the state(s) in which the watershed is located and the number of Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 sampling stations located in the watershed. The remainder of this document presents specific information for each watershed containing APCs. The first page of each watershed summary presents general information concerning the watershed--USGS accounting unit in which it is located; state(s) in which it is located; political boundaries (counties that include at least part of the watershed); major waterways; and number of Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 sampling stations in the watershed--and a map identifying the location of the watershed relative to the primary state in which it is located. The second page of each summary presents a map identifying the location of major waterways (RFI) in the watershed and the location of Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3 sampling stations in the watershed. Following the watershed map is a table listing the data sources used in the evaluation of sampling stations in the watershed. A series of tables follows the list of data sources.
