The regional stream survey for central New Brunswick (NTS 021J/02 East and 021J/07) was conducted during the summer and fall of 1992.

This report presents analytical and statistical data for 36 elements in stream sediments from 747 sample sites, collected at an average density of one sample per 2.2 km². Loss-on-ignition in sediments, and uranium, fluoride, and pH values in waters from these sites are included in this report.
