On 12 April, 2023, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) issued a joint public notice regarding the availability of the beta SDAM for the Northeast and Southeast. The purpose of this rapid assessment tool is to help distinguish between ephemeral, intermittent, and perennial streamflow at the reach scale for the Northeast and Southeast SDAM Regions. Practitioners are encouraged to comment on their experience using the beta SDAM during the year long beta timeframe. Comments can be sent to the USACE email or physical address located in the public notice.
