||Nutrient and suspended-sediment (SS) samples were collected under base flow, fixed date, and stormflow conditions during calendar year 2005 for Group A sites listed in Table 2. Fixed date and storm samples also were collected at sites listed in Group B. All samples were analyzed for nitrogen and phosphorus species, total organic carbon (TOC), and SS. Precipitation for 2005 was above average at all Group A sites except Lewisburg and Newport. The highest departure from the longterm precipitation average was recorded at Towanda with 16.49 inches above the long-term mean (LTM). Highest departure from LTM for discharge was 115 percent above LTM at both Danville and Conestoga. Precipitation and flows were above LTM largely due to heavy rainfalls in January and April. Lowest departure from the mean was at Newport with 3.43 inches below LTM for rainfall and flows at 91 percent of the LTM. Low rainfall during the spring and summer months in the western part of the basin led to below LTM rainfall and flows at Lewisburg and Newport.
