Geological Survey (USGS) began a National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) program. The three major objectives of the NAWQA program are to provide a consistent description of current water-quality conditions for a large part of the Nation's water resources, define long-term trends in water quality, and identify, describe, and explain the major factors that affect water.

Changes in water corrosivity from 84 river sites were investigated using long-term data sets. As part of the National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) project of the National Water-Quality Program, long-term water-quality data from multiple sites across the Conterminous United States have been used to analyze seasonal- and flow-related variability and trends in the CSMR and LR indices.

The goal of the Final Watershed Assessment will be to provide a water resource management strategy for the Monongahela River watershed that seeks sustainable water resources management while taking into consideration environmental protection, economic development and social well-being.

Supporting study objectives to accomplish the goal will be: 1. River Basin. The Ohio River Valley Water occurred on the Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio rivers within its borders. It is this close This information would characterize the water quality issues of the basin and provide a basis for instrument identification and placement.

Table 1 provides a statistical summary of the water quality parameters measured in the 6 river systems. Kruskal–Wallis tests showed that most parameters varied significantly among the 6 river systems (with the exception of T and NO 3-N).The average pH was highest in NH (), followed by HY, and the lowest value was observed in YJ ().

The Monongahela River (/ m ə ˌ n ɒ ŋ ɡ ə ˈ h iː l ə / mə-NONG-gə-HEE-lə, /-ˈ h eɪ-/-⁠ HAY-) —often referred to locally as the Mon (/ m ɒ n /)—is a mile-long ( km) river on the Allegheny Plateau in north-central West Virginia and southwestern river flows from the confluence of its west and east forks in north-central West Virginia northeasterly into.

Surface water quality criteria and procedures to calculate water quality criteria are contained in Chapter of the Ohio Administrative Code (OAC). With adoption of rules in pursuant to the federal Great Lakes Initiative, the water quality criteria for many chemicals differ between the Lake Erie drainage basin and the Ohio River.
