The document is the result of a cooperative research effort involving scientists from several agencies as part of the Aquatic Effects Research Program (AERP) of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The Episodic Response Project (ERP) is an intensive study conducted at a limited number of sites, rather than an extensive regional study. The three areas targeted by the ERP are the Northern Appalachian Plateau of Pennsylvania, and the Adirondack and Catskill Mountains of New York. Each stream was monitored from fall 1988 through spring 1990, with continuous measurement of discharge and automated water sampling at fixed time intervals or at specified stage level changes. The water samples underwent chemical analysis for acid neutralizing capacity (ANC), pH, total dissolved aluminum, dissolved organic carbon (DOC), sulfate, nitrate, chloride, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium. Furthermore, a subset of samples were analyzed for inorganic aluminum. Specific streams, participating institutions and cooperators, methods, and results are presented in the report.
