Geological Survey Draft Open-File Report. Environmental Setting and Water-Quality Issues in the Lower Tennessee River Basin By James A. Kingsbury, Anne B. Hoos, and Michael D. Woodside Abstract The goals of the National Water-Quality Assessment Program are to describe current water-quality conditions for a large part of the Nation’s water resources, identify water-quality.

Additionally, the committee visited, in small teams, five of the seven sites selected as pilot projects: the Carson basin aquifer, Upper Illinois River basin, Yakima River basin, Kentucky River basin, and Central Oklahoma basin aquifer. Meetings were held with USGS project personnel and the local liaison committee.

SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), propose to list the Kentucky arrow darter (Etheostoma spilotum), a fish species from the upper Kentucky River basin in Kentucky, as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act (Act).

This work was funded by a grant from the Mississippi River Water Quality Collaborative, a group of state, regional and national non-profit organizations working together to improve water quality in the Mississippi River basin.

The purpose of this book is • present a taxonomic study of the Upper Ohio River Bacillariophyta.

• create a floristic assessment of the species that occur in the basin. • This study can serve as a basis for water quality evaluation using diatoms. This mapper provides results from the largest-ever assessment of water-quality changes in the Nation's streams and rivers. More than million water-quality records from over Federal, State, Tribal, and local organizations were screened as part of this assessment.

The Green River basin evolved from diverse parent materials, with the Upper Green River in karst terrain and the Lower Green River in stream deposits that overlay rocks rich in fossil fuels.

The result is a basin in which people have benefited from their natural resources while, at the same time, dealing with degradation of the landscape and. This study can serve as a basis for water quality evaluation using diatoms. Although all the taxa described here and their photographs are for the Ohio River basin, the book will be of use to anyone working on rivers of North America because diatoms are cosmopolitan in distribution.

The Ivo River Basin of south-eastern Nigeria is a water scarce and mining region, which suffers from water scarcity. The influence of mining activities on the quality of the Ivo River and its capacity for community water supply was investigated. Also the efficacy of TDS-Eh graph in explaining water quality was presented.

Results indicated that the TDS-Eh graph highlights Cited by: 3.
