Abstract (from CDS):

We performed a 22 GHz H2O maser survey towards 221 Bolocam Galactic Plane Survey (BGPS) sources. We detected 107 H2O masers, of which 12 are new. The detection rate is 48.4 percent for our sample. We obtained the positions of five new H2O masers via On The Fly (OTF) observations. The detection rate of H2O masers is correlated with continuum emission fluxes of BGPS sources at far-infrared, sub-millimetre and millimetre wavelengths. We employed the classification of Dunham et al. to classify the evolutionary stage of BGPS sources into Group 0, 1, 2, and 3. The detection rate and velocity range of H2O masers increases as the BGPS sources evolve from Group 1 to Group 3. The BGPS sources associated with both H2O and CH3OH masers are more compact than that associated with either only H2O or only CH3OH masers. This indicates that the sources associated with both H2O and CH3OH masers are in relative later evolutionary stage. The detection rate of H2O masers towards BGPS sources displaying evidence of the collapse phenomenon is 62.1 percent, which suggests that most BGPS sources showing indications of collapse phenomena contain ongoing active star formation activities.
