Suspended Sediment and Nutrients in the Upper CAPE FEAR RIVER BASIN,<br>North Carolina, 2002-04, with an Analysis of Temporal Changes, 1976-2004:<br>USGS Scientific Investigations Report 2005-5271

This report presents (1) water-quality and streamflow data collected from August 2002 through August 2004 from the Haw River near Bynum and the Deep River at Moncure in North Carolina (fig. 1), and (2) an evaluation of historical data defining general water quality and suspended sediment, total suspended solids, and nutrient loads transported at these two sites between 1976 and 2004 to determine if loads and concentrations have changed. Because the two sampling sites are located at the most downstream part of each river sub-basin (fig. 1), the data can be used to evaluate current (2004) water-quality characteristics in both rivers resulting from land use in the upstream areas. In addition, evaluation of historical data enables the UCFRBA to determine whether water-quality changes have occurred in the basins. Prepared in cooperation with the Upper Cape Fear River Basin Association
