Abstract
This 2002 305(b) report provides a summary of the Susquehanna River Basin Commission's (SRBC's) assessment of the water quality, physical habitat, and biological status of its basin's rivers and streams. These assessments are based on monitoring activities from sediment and nutrient sampling, subbasin surveys, interstate stream projects, a stream restoration project in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, and a lowflow study downstream of the Whitney Point reservoir. Also included are summary data from SRBCs ground-water withdrawal reviews. This report, which was prepared to meet the requirements of Section 305(b) of the Clean Water Act, is formatted according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) in its 'Guidelines for Preparation of the Comprehensive State Water Quality Assessments (305(b) Reports) and Electronic Updates (September 1997).'
