The Ware River Intensive Watershed Study includes examinations of runoff from small catchments, instream transport of runoff, and their impacts on estuarine water quality. Runoff quantity and quality were monitored for row crop, residential and forested lands in the Ware basin for the period of October 1979 to July 1981. Loading rates have been calculated for both baseflow and stormflow contributions at each study site.
