Map: Short-Term Trend in Flow-Adjusted Total Suspended Solids Concentration, 2004-2013

Over the past decade, none of the monitoring sites in the Chesapeake Bay watershed have shown improving flow-adjusted trends in sediment concentrations. Between 2004 and 2013: zero sites have shown improving trends for sediment concentrations. Four sites—including the Appomattox, Choptank, Pamunkey and Patuxent rivers—have shown degrading trends. Five sites—including the James, Mattaponi, Potomac, Rappahannock and Susquehanna rivers—have shown minor changes that are not statistically significant.
