General Topics

SRBC's 50th Anniversary Celebration: 1971-2021 Story Map

A highlight of the Commission's first 50 years of landmark achievements, ongoing activities, and the people who have helped to make it all happen.


Water Use Dashboard

Track water use quantities throughout the Susquehanna River Basin in this dashboard. Approved and reported water use totals, as well as reported quantities by major industry, are available for each subbasin for the years 2014, 2017, 2019, and 2020.


Aquatic Species

Eels in the Classroom Story Map

Learn about the Eels in the Classroom educational program that is provided by the Commission. This story map explains why migratory American Eels are important to the environment, how the program works, outlines teacher resources, and shares success stories.


Invasive Fish eDNA Projects Story Map

See how the Commission has been using eDNA as a new monitoring tool to track aquatic invasive species such as blue catfish, northern snakehead, and round goby throughout the Susquehanna River Basin.


eDNA Monitoring Site Dashboard

Between 2019 and 2021, Commission staff performed eDNA analyses at stream sites throughout the Lower Susquehanna Subbasin. Interact with this dashboard to see when and where aquatic invasive species have been found.


Flooding

Flood Preparedness Story Map

Recognizing the 50th Anniversary of Hurricane Agnes, the Commission, in partnership with Silver Jackets, developed this informational tool to facilitate preparation and planning for the next flood. Visit NOAA's Hurricane Agnes website to view other story maps related to Hurricane Agnes and advancements in flood risk reduction.


Mine Drainage

Tioga River Abandoned Mine Drainage Treatment Plant Project

The Commission and several partner agencies are in the design phase for an active treatment plant on Morris Run that will help restore over 20 miles of the Tioga River. Take a story map tour of the project and see the places that will benefit from this new initiative.


Water Quality

Continuous Instream Monitoring Story Map

Learn about the Commission's CIM Network. This network of monitoring stations across the Susquehanna River Basin transmits near real-time water quality data for parameters such as water temperature, specific conductivity, pH, turbidity, and dissolved oxygen.


Continuous Instream Monitoring Station Dashboard

Investigate water quality data for each monitoring station in the Commission's CIM Network. Data are shown for water temperature, fish surveys, macroinvertebrate IBI scores, water quality index scores, and continuous parameter statistics.


Continuous Instream Monitoring Trends Dashboard

As a compliment to the above dashboard, this CIM Network dashboard shows the long-term trends for each collected water quality parameter. Trends for improving or declining water quality are shown for water temperature, turbidity, specific conductance, pH, and dissolved oxygen.


Stories in Water Data Story Map

This story map describes the Commission's Sediment & Nutrient Assessment Program (SNAP) that monitors water quality trends related to Chesapeake Bay pollution. Tracking trends helps to focus Chesapeake Bay restoration efforts and determine if conditions are improving.


USEPA Funded 2022 Water Quality Monitoring Sites Dashboard

Explore all of the water quality stream monitoring sites sampled by Commission scientists in this dashboard. Various sampling details are provided for each site such as parameter collected, number of samples, sampling methodology, and site photos.


Stream Monitoring in the Lower Susquehanna Subbasin

In 2017, Commission staff visited 47 sites on streams within the Lower Susquehanna Subbasin to evaluate water chemistry, available habitat, and the health of the stream macroinvertebrate communities. Take a story map tour to view the monitoring results for each site.
