During 2002–2004, the U.S. Geological Survey’s National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Program conducted a study to determine the effects of urbanization on stream water quality and aquatic communities in six environmentally heterogeneous areas of the conterminous United States—Atlanta, Georgia; Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina; Milwaukee-Green Bay, Wisconsin; Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas; Denver, Colorado; and Portland, Oregon. Chemical constituents studied included concentrations of nutrients, dissolved pesticides, suspended sediment, sulfate, and chloride in base flow.
