    The table of field spike recovery data includes results from paired environmental and spike samples collected by the National Water Quality Program, National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Project in surface water and groundwater. The National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Project provides an understanding of water-quality conditions; whether conditions are getting better or worse over time; and how natural features and human activities affect those conditions. Regional and national assessments are possible because of a consistent study design and uniform methods of data collection and analysis.

    The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) BioData Retrieval system provides public access to bioassessment data collected by USGS scientists from stream ecosystems across the nation. USGS scientists collect fish, aquatic macroinvertebrate, and algae community samples and conduct stream physical habitat surveys as part of its fundamental mission to describe and understand the Earth. From through , the San Joaquin-Tulare Basins Study team of the USGS National Water Quality Assessment program investigated the occurrence and distribution of water quality constituents in.
