      The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Maryland Department of the Environment, operated a network of 20 low-flow partial-record stations during in a region that extends from southwest of Baltimore to the northeastern corner of Maryland to obtain estimates of selected streamflow statistics at the station locations. Dissolved pesticides were measured in weekly water samples from wadeable streams across eleven states in the Midwestern U.S. during May-August, , as part of the Midwest Stream Quality Assessment study conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) National Water Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Project.

The Maryland coastal zone is comprised of the land, water and subaqueous land between the territorial limits of Maryland in the Chesapeake Bay, Atlantic Coastal Bays and the Atlantic Ocean, as well as the towns, cities and counties that contain and help govern the thousands of miles of Maryland shoreline.

The Maryland Biological Stream Survey monitors stream water temperature using instream temperature recorders. Temperature data from this survey has been used to identify coldwater stream reaches, monitor cold and warm water fish communities, and track potential climate change trends in the state.

aryland has o miles of streams flowing to the major tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay, the Atlantic Ocean, and even the Mississippi River. These waterways have importance far beyond their basic function as water conduits. Streams are integral components of our environment that offer many benefits to Maryland’s residents.

Groundwater is nearly the sole source of fresh drinking water in Maryland's Coastal Plain (the area east of I). Approximately million people rely on groundwater in the Coastal Plain. While groundwater is not used as much as surface water as a water source, some towns and most domestic users in central and western Maryland also rely.

Water Quality Assessments This interactive map displays surface water quality assessment information found in Maryland’s Integrated Report of Surface Water Quality (IR). Assessments have been made for a variety of water body types and show both good water quality and impairments.

(Manual, ). Coastal Plain Region. Coastal Plain sediments thicken from northwest to southeast, increasing from a few feet at the Fall Line to greater than 7, feet at Ocean City.

Most aquifers in the Coastal Plain are overlain by low permeability clay layers (forming confined or artesian aquifers) which prevents surface contaminants from reaching the.

The Nation's rivers and streams are a priceless resource, but pollution from urban and agricultural areas pose a threat to our water quality. To understand the value of water quality, and to more effectively manage and protect the Nation's water resources, it's critical that we know the current status of water-quality conditions, and how and why those conditions have been changing over time.

Ground water in Maryland’s Coastal Plain is derived from rain and snow that falls within the outcrop area of the aquifers (that is, the area where the aquifers reach the surface).

Infiltrating rain water and snowmelt percolates downward through the soil zone until it reaches the water table (the level below which the ground is. flow 8/20 Lake or reser-voir elev-ation, NAVD, feet Estuary or ocean elev-ation, NAVD, ATLANTIC COASTAL BAYS DRAINAGE: MILLSBORO POND OUTLET AT MILLSBORO, DE: 08/20 EDT: Page Contact Information: Maryland Water Data Maintainer.

In Maryland, where ground-water and surface-water resources are used extensively, surface-water withdrawals amounted to 70 percent of the total water withdrawn in Ground water, which provides the remaining 30 percent of water withdrawals, is used primarily in the Coastal Plain of Mary land where fresh surface-water supplies are less.

Maryland is a unique area in that we have a number of different resources so close together. Making this situation even more complex is the fact that those areas intertwine, and it is the responsibility of the Department of Natural Resources to effectively manage Maryland's bays and streams that lie within and tie into our watershed.

Statewide Water-Quality Real-Time Table Statewide Precipitation Real-Time Table Real-time data typically are recorded at minute intervals, stored onsite, and then transmitted to USGS offices every 15 to 60 minutes, depending on the data relay technique used.

Recording and transmission times may be more frequent during critical events. Groundwater-quality data were collected from wells as part of the National Water-Quality Assessment Project of the U.S.

Geological Survey National Water-Quality Program and are included in this report. Most of the wells () were sampled from January through December and 60 of them were sampled in and 74 in Streams were carefully selected to assess the response to climatic conditions.

Criteria for selecting a streamflow site for assessing climatic conditions include: Minimum period of record is 10 years of continuous data, real-time preferred; Watershed areas greater than 5 square miles; Streamflow is not regulated, or has relatively natural flow.

Additionally, the survey compares the condition of streams to those of an earlier study that focused on small streams (the Wadeable Streams Assessment or WSA) conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and its partners in Sampling Schedule.

NRSA sampling field seasons were conducted in and The Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) is provided online by the Division of State Documents at However, COM AR in print form will continue to be the only official legally enforceable version of the Code.

Unconfined and Confined Aquifers A groundwater reservoir is a confined aquifer (also called an artesian aquifer) if it is sandwiched between two impervious zones.
