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

Watershed Yield: Total Nitrogen yields ranged from 0.33 to 9.87 tons per square mile. Each of the 17 sites in the high yield category carries more than 3.4 tons of nitrogen per square mile of watershed. These sites are generally located on the Eastern Shore, Lower Susquehanna and Northern Potomac Watersheds. The lowest yields, which are less than 1.2 tons per square mile, are generally in the Upper Potomac and Southern Virginia Rivers.
