The chemical composition of a series of streams ranging from ephemeral channels (e.g., watersheds 2, 3, and 4) with average discharge of <100 l/sec to large rivers (i.e., Enoree and Tyger) with discharge averaging 14 m3/sec in the Calhoun area where sampled monthly from 2014 to 2016. The data indicate the ephemeral watershed drainages have lower pH ( >6.2) and EC (<80 uS/cm) compared to other streams. In addition, the Tyger and Enoree river show the highest pH ( >6.8 ), and EC ( 50-130 uS/cm) over the two years. No stream appears strongly divergent chemically suggesting similar geological influences in the area.
