The quality of runoff from nine mainstem river stations and three inner harbor stations were monitored between 1975 and 1977. Automatic flow recording and water sampling instruments were used at the mainstem river stations. Seasonal flow and concentration data for 26 parameters monitored throughout the study are documented, although discussion is focused on the key parameters--suspended solids, total and soluble-P and lead--to demonstrate seasonal and site differences. Bacterial counts and PCB concentrations determined sporadically are also included. Evaluation made on the concentration data includes (1) comparison with water quality criteria, (2) correlation to show relationships between parameters and (3) behavior of parameter concentration and loading rates during an event.
