Forested and mountainous locations, such as national forests, tend to receive more precipitation than adjacent non-forested or low-lying areas. However the precise contributions of National Forest System lands to regional streamflow volumes is largely unknown. Here we provide maps and text files for each national forest in the Northeastern Region (Region 9) to illustrate the importance of national forest water yield to regional water quality and water quantity.
