    The Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC) is an interstate agency that coordinates the management of water resources in the Susquehanna River Basin. Our mission is to enhance public welfare through comprehensive planning, water supply allocation, and management of water resources. The SRBC website provides public information, explains the structure of the Commission, . Chesapeake Bay, Potomac & Local Water Resources The scope of water resource issues addressed in the metropolitan Washington region encompasses drinking water, wastewater and stormwater, and the associated need to protect and promote those valuable programs and the region’s multi-decade, multi-billion-dollar investments in water infrastructure.

    In the Potomac River basin, three water-quality monitoring stations (sites ) were used to assess water-quality conditions during Site 4 monitors drainage from the upper part of the Potomac River basin, including drainage from the Appalachian Plateaus and Valley and Ridge provinces. Susquehanna River Basin Water Quality Assessment (b) Report, Publication #, May This report by the Susquehanna River Basin Commission is an assessment of the use support status of the basin’s rivers and streams, as required by Section (b) of the federal Clean Water Act.

      Sediment and nutrient loadings from the Susquehanna River are crucial to understanding the status and progress of water quality in the Chesapeake Bay. On average, the Susquehanna River contributes nearly 41 percent of the nitrogen, 25 percent of the phosphorus, and 27 percent of the sediment load to the Bay. Watershed management is the study of the relevant characteristics of a watershed aimed at the sustainable distribution of its resources and the process of creating and implementing plans, programs and projects to sustain and enhance watershed functions that affect the plant, animal, and human communities within the watershed boundary. Features of a watershed that agencies seek to manage .

Watershed Implementation Plans, created by watershed jurisdictions under the Chesapeake Bay “pollution diet” or Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL), are instrumental in the restoration of tidal water quality.

Improving water quality will support other restoration goals and benefit human health. Outcome: Byhave practices and controls in place that are expected to achieve 60 percent of the nutrient and sediment pollution load reductions necessary to achieve applicable water quality.

This is followed by our proposed framework and demonstrated application. The paper concludes with a discussion of the implication for water quality management and directions for further research.

Since their construction, the reservoirs behind the three dams along the lower Susquehanna River (Holtwood, Safe Harbor, and Conowingo) have historically acted as effective traps for a portion of pollution from the Susquehanna River, and the nutrients that are often attached, thereby reducing the amount of sand, silt, nitrogen and phosphorus entering the Chesapeake Bay.DRBC's Project Review Program reviews applications for water resource projects that withdraw from or discharge to the basin's waters over certain thresholds.

Reviewable projects are also subject to DRBC's water code, water supply charges, and floodplain and water quality regulations, where applicable.
