Abstract

Boston Harbor encompasses nearly 50 square miles and is an estuary, where fresh water from tributary rivers mix with the salt water of Massachusetts Bay. The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) monitors water quality at more than 50 locations in Boston Harbor. Measurements are also made in the Charles, Mystic, and Neponset rivers. The monitoring program is designed to monitor the impacts of combined sewer overflows (CSOs) on the Harbor and rivers. The MWRA has been monitoring water quality in Boston Harbor and its tributary rivers since 1989. Collecting long-term water quality data helps to identify changes in water quality over time. The CUAHSI staff downloaded this data set from the MRWA's website, reformatted the metadata, and uploaded the data to CUAHSI's data hosting service, HydroPortal.
