The Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC) conducts a water quality and biological assessment of each of the six major subbasins (Figure 1) approximately every 10 years on a rotating schedule. The SRBC assessment has provided information used to: Evaluate the chemical, biological, and habitat conditions of streams in the basin; Identify major sources of pollution and lengths of stream impacted; Maintain a database that can be used to document changes in stream quality over time; Review projects affecting water quality in the basin; and Identify areas for more intensive study.
