The regional stream survey for central New Brunswick (NTS 21J/06 and 21J/10) was conducted during the summer of 2000.

This report presents analytical and statistical data for 48 elements in stream sediments from 868 sample sites, collected at an average density of one sample per 2.5 km². Loss-on-ignition in sediments, and uranium, conductivity, and pH values in waters from these sites are included in this report.
