Gathering a Sample

Welcome to our "Projects" pages! Here is where we showase our work, arranged by related disciplines, The Maryland-Delaware-D.C. (MD-DE-DC) Water Science Center conducts hydrologic projects that address a wide variety of water-resources issues, including water supply, Groundwater contamination, nutrient loading in streams, effects of land use on water quality, and basic hydrologic data collection.

The following list of projects includes water-resources projects being conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey in the States of Maryland, Delaware, and the District of Columbia.


Hydrologic Data for Deep Creek Lake and Selected Tributaries, Garrett County, Maryland, 2007-2008
Groundwater, surface water, and sediment data for Deep Creek Lake and selected tributaries

Chesapeake Bay River Input Program
Loads and long-term trends in concentrations of nutrients and suspended material entering the tidal part of the Chesapeake Bay Basin from its nine major tributaries

Chesapeake Bay Ecosystem Project
Providing integrated science for improved understanding and management of the Bay ecosystem

Anacostia Groundwater Study
