Upper Potomac Headwaters Report Card

Upper Potomac Report Card 2015Produced in December 2015 by the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science, the Upper Potomac Headwaters Report Card represents a joint effort of students and faculty at the Appalachian Laboratory and the Integration and Application Network.

The aim of this environmental report card is to provide a transparent, timely, and geographically detailed assessment of water quality for the headwater streams of the Potomac River. Environmental report cards synthesize ecological data and communicate scientific results to the public to galvanize efforts to improve ecosystem health. Report cards inform policy and management, mobilize communities, and stimulate research.
