Three Orleans County tributaries were intensely monitored for one year (5 June 1997 to 4 June 1998) with automated gaging and samnpling stations installed on Oak Orchard, Johnson and Sandy Creeks. This sampling regime allows an accurate measurement of discharge, nutrient and sediment loss from the watersheds during both event and nonevent conditions. Discharge and concentrations of nitrate, total phosphorus, sodium, total suspended solids, and total kjeldahl nitrogen were measured and converted into the amount of material lost from each watershed.
