Map: Sediment Yields Measured in Watershed Streams and Rivers, Mean 2008-2012

Watershed Yield: Sediment yields ranged from 9.3 to 648 tons per square mile. Each of the 17 sites in the high yield category carries more than 200 tons of sediment per square mile of watershed. High yielding sites are spatially dispersed across the Susquehanna, Potomac and Rappahannock watersheds. The lowest sediment yielding sits are located on the Eastern Shore and the York River Basin.
