    By the s, the ichthyofauna of Pennsylvania's Monongahela River basin was decimated by a combination of discharges from industrial, coal extraction, and municipal sources. The alkalinity of that water masked the acidic discharges into the Monongahela River of the 1, smaller mines abandoned since the early s. But as the number of active mines in the Monongahela River drainage has dwindled to under a dozen, more and more acid is finding its way into streams and the river.

[Donald K Stewart; M V Mathes; Geological Survey (U.S.); West Virginia. Division of Highways.]. DRAINAGE AREAS OF THE POTOMAC RIVER BASIN, WEST VIRGINIA By Jeffrey B. Wiley, Michelle L. Hunt, and Donald K. Stewart ABSTRACT This report contains data for drainage-area divisions of the Potomac River Basin, from the headwa-ters to the confluence of the Potomac River and the Shenandoah River.

Data, compiled in downstream order,Cited by: 1. West Virginia has 32 watersheds divided according to the USGS hydrologic unit codes (HUC) that contribute to the Chesapeake Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The waters west of the eastern continental divide flow into the Ohio River.

The Ohio joins the Mississippi River at Cairo, IL. The Mississippi flows into the Gulf of Mexico at New Orleans, LA. Watershed planning focuses on a watershed, a geographic area that is defined by a drainage basin.

Often this geographic area is described using hydrologic unit codes (HUC). The study area for this effort is defined as the HUC 4 Monongahela River watershed located in the north central portion of West Virginia, the western tip of Maryland, and. 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 Mouth: Ohio River.

Lake Monongahela was a proglacial lake in western Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and formed during the Pre-Illinoian ice epoch when the retreat of the ice sheet northwards blocked the drainage of these valleys to the north.

The lake formed south of the ice front continued to rise until it was able to breach a low divide near New Martinsville, West Virginia. This report contains data for drainage-area divisions of the Potomac River Basin, from the headwaters to the confluence of the Potomac River and the Shenandoah River.

Data, compiled in downstream order, are listed for streams with a drainage area of approximately 2 square miles or larger within West Virginia and for U.S.

Geological Survey streamflow-gaging stations. The Division wished to document these changes in the West Virginia portion of the Monongahela River and, in cooperation with U.

The mile Monongahela River rises at the junction of the West Fork River and the Tygart Valley River at Fairmont, WV, and ends at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where it joins the Allegheny River to form the Ohio West Virginia, it travels across central Marion County and eastern Monongalia County on its 37 mile journey to the Pennsylvania border at the Mason-Dixon Line.

In this report, the Monongahela River and its drainage area which begins as the source confluences of the West Fork River and the Tygart Valley River join together at the City of Fairmont, West Virginia and where it meets the Stateline near the outlet of Camp Run is referred to as the Monongahela River Watershed.

An ancient predecessor river was once blocked by glacier ice north of Pittsburgh to form the prehistoric Lake Monongahela, which occupied portions of present Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.

The Monongahela watershed includes much of north-central West Virginia, southwestern Pennsylvania, and western Maryland. To distinguish the characteristics between Fort Ancient and interior Monongahelan of West Virginia, Dr. McMichael writes, "A reflection of the Monongahela's greater Woodland heritage was the continued use of small stone mounds in the Monongahela .The Monongahela is formed by the confluence of the West Fork River and its "East Fork" — the Tygart Valley River — at Fairmont, West Virginia.

The river is navigable its entire length with a series of locks and dams that maintain a minimum depth of 9 feet ( m) to accommodate coal-laden barges.Notice - The USGS Water Resources Mission Area's priority is to maintain the safety and well-being of our communities, including providing critical situational awareness in times of flooding in all 50 U.S.
