Data Extent

Mahantango Creek Experimental Watershed, Pennsylvania (Water Quality)

A long-term water quality database has been developed by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Agricultural Research Service (ARS) Pasture Systems and Watershed Management Research Unit to support water quality research within WE-38, a 7.3 km2 experimental subwatershed of Mahantango Creek Watershed located in east central Pennsylvania and draining to the Susquehanna River. Water quality data were collected at the outflow of WE-38, with record lengths of 24 years (1983-2007) for nitrate-N and ammonium-N and 23 years (1984-2007) for orthophosphate-P. The water quality sampling site is located 130 m
upstream from the WE-38 weir and 30 m upstream of a footbridge that spans the stream channel. At base flow (discharge ~0.16m3 s-1), the width of the stream channel is about 1.8 m, and the thalweg depth is about 0.2 m.
