Intended Data Use:

  1. How do you intend to use this data?

Data will be used for my thesis project. I am comparing results from a new field stream assessment method to existing data from more established/accepted methods (benthos, water chemistry, hydrograph characteristics) at 70 locations across NC, including four locations in Mecklenburg County. The requested chemistry data will be combined with those from other sources (DWQ, USGS) for the statewide analysis.

Comments / Details:

(Provide additional information as necessary to clarify your data request if not already provided above):

I am primarily interested in the monthly FIMS data. I do not need the continuous monitoring data (CMANN) or the stormflow monitoring (ISM). Station location/description would be extremely helpful-- preferably lat/long but even just the name of the cross street would be fine.
